Interested to read this. I got into racing cycling via my dadís Uncle, Cliff Peters, who supplied my frames and built my wheels. He has a shop in Birmingham.
Used to always meet up with him on the Milk Race


Also have some of his shoe plates !


Best

Hi John welcome to the Forum.Many thanks for your post.I bought my first bike from Wilsons in 1955 after starting work at Marsh & Baxters.He let me pay for it weekly 5 shillings a week.It was a Carlton Continental with BerBot handlebars and Campag gears.What a great bike took me all around Scotland & Wales and most of England when I was young and a Trainspotter .Again many thanks.

I think it best you do not include your Email address on an open Forum such as this you may well be inundated with unwanted Emails. Not a criticism just a word of advice
