Frame from the old country

hey guise---can anyone tell me about this frame?

it's from a builder in wolverhampton - where my cousins are from and near where my pa and grandfolks grew up.



i don't know if i'll bid - but it sure looks great...
what would you all build on it (if you were rebuilding it)?

the seller took a while to get back to me...but i've finally managed to pay for them and hopefully they'll be here end of next week!

the "wheels" SD75 refers to are mavic G 40's i found on ebay....for the mercier i bought a whiles back (which had freaky tubular tyres that i convinced myself i had to get rid of)

I think the G 40s are basically the same vintage as the tubular rims i got with the bike... so hopefully a perfect match.

It says that the lugs are Benelux with a Nervex bottom bracket, but I think he means that the dropouts are Benelux & the Lugset is Nervex Professional as Benelux didn't make lugs as far as I know, but definately did make dropouts.
They are Nervex Professional head lugs, that's for sure.

If you want something to remind you of home, then this could be the ticket.
