Norman Taylor - RIP *LINK*

Sad news I heard today of Norman Taylor's funeral of Jack Taylor Cycles. He was the framebuilder of the three brothers who made up the great tandem business.

I remember in my early days of framebuilding the many chats as one does at the York Cycle show with the brothers and particuarly Norman on the framebuilding skills we shared. What was great was how they welcomed me into the trade that they had been involved in with for years.

I also remember sending off for their catalogue when I was 16 and seeing how expensive they were - nothing changes though we still hear it today!!

Remember also that these guys started selling most of their tandems to the US and particualry to Bill McCready of Santana, a great tribute to the home of Tandeming.

Rest well Norman - long rememberded
