Just to clarify something posted by Michael Davis. I am no Claud Butler
expert, nor have I presented myself as one. As I remember, I told Michael
that the serial number on his bike frame was not consistent with any CB
serial numbers I was aware of from the 1930s - 1940s, but was more
consistent with a serial number from 1951. (This is based on the serial
numbers that have been collected by Norman Kilgariff and myself).
Clearly, the answer to this mystery frame will come from a real marque
expert who will recognize the construction of the frame. I hope Michael
will have pictures of his frame soon.
Good riding to you all.
