  • Description:

    Claud Butler International Club Classic Bicycle from 1951. Claud Butler is definitely one of the most famous British lightweight bicycle manufacturers. He established his workshop in the late twenties in south London, where he started building hand-made bicycles. Due to his meticulous, excellent workmanship and successful marketing his bicycles soon became very popular among cycling enthusiasts.

    Claud Butler then became famous for bi-laminated lugs and his lugless frames. In the late thirties he started experimenting with fillet brazing, a low temperature process which uses a bronze rod to create a fillet without any lug castings. The result were clean and elegant frames, true craftsmanship masterpieces. Strangely enough by then many people thought of this technique as being inferior to lugging.

    This International Club is actually one of the stunning bicycles Claud Butler manufactured in post-war times. The fillet brazed frame is built with fine Reynolds 531 tubes and still has the original paintwork and decals. Despite its patina, this bicycle is in really good condition and fully equipped with all original parts from its era: GB Sport brakes, Dunlop 27" rims and Cyclo Benelux 4 speed gears!

    A gem of the British heritage. For true connoisseurs!
