Claud Butler tandem originally owned and raced by Charlie Alexander and later owned and raced by Les Leamon. Passed on to us by Les 23 years ago and refurbished with straight handlebars and squashy saddles. According to Les, this bike was used in the Empire Games (1958) and in the Commonwealth Games (Perth, 1962 and Edinburgh 1970). I've included an old photo of Les racing it and  a newspaper article from 1980 about one of Les's record holding wins and have a Welsh Cycling record book that mentions races it was in. It hasn't been used for many years and I can no longer ride it, it is stored indoors. We had a lot of fun with it and took it to France where it drew attention wherever we went, I hope someone can love it like we did and restore it to its former glory. For collection only, you are welcome to view. Payment by bank transfer or cash on collection please. Sorry I can't help with any technical information.
