David Jones 1960's Evans.

David Jones has kindly sent me photos of his 1960's Evans. The frame is quite ornate with chromed Nervex lugs, flamboyant ruby paintwork and gold box lining.

"It is built it up for all-weather use with a Sturmey Archer Sprinter 5, hub brakes, Mavic Module 4's, 700Cx37 tyres and mudguards. There was a bad touch-up on top tube, so it has been re-done it and re-lined where missing, so that it won't deteriorate any further with some care. The braze-ons look as they were originally designed for a twin cable Sturmey-Archer hub gear set-up and not for any normal/modern derailleurs".
