Professional View

WOW! What an absolute museum piece. And yet, you can ride it! For such a low price as well. An original Claud Butler, purchased from his brother Geoffrey Butler's South London shop in 1961. With only 5 gears and a huge front ring this is a pure race machine. 

Some choice features include: swirly Nervex lugs, fat 32mm tyres, a Brooks Professional saddle, and best of all a Campagnolo Gran Sport derailleur. To overstate the importance of this derailleur in the history of the bicycle is impossible. It all but made road racing possible as a discipline!

Own a piece of history, own this Claud Butler.
