I am new to the list, and joined partly just to ask if someone could update the website with some information on the James Cycle Company in England. I stumbled across some pictures of what I consider is a lovely machine, "The Famous James" racer from 1931 (http://theracingbicycle.com/James.html), and I looked on the CR website, but didn't find anything of detail on the James Cycle Co. and its history. It turns out there are very few (if any) other pictures of the James bicycles online, but there are some links to additional information on the company and its other products, most notably the motorcycles. Here are some links you could use to add information to the site:

http://www.users.globalnet.co.uk/~pattle/nacc/arc0438.htm -- General history of the company, with good photos http://www.madeinbirmingham.org/james.htm -- Another history, similar text but a few different pictures, including one of a man riding what could be a James bicycle http://www.oldclassiccar.co.uk/jamescycles.htm -- photo of an invoice for a James bicycle http://www.simplywizard.co.uk/ -- James motorcycle information website http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/THE-JAMES-Classic-custom-XL-T-shirt-motorcycle-bike_W0QQcmdZViewItemQQitemZ190137449060 -- T-Shirt with the logo for the company http://www.designasign.eu/shop.php/large-metal-signs/hobbies-sports/cycling/the-famous-james-modern-delivert-method-1913/p_3705.html -- image from an old company poster showing a delivery bicycle http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/James_Cycle_Co -- a rudimentary wikipedia link.

Is anyone up for doing a page? I don't feel qualified, as all I know about the James is what I gathered from an hour or two of web surfing.
