Have this selection of clippings from my late father who cycled in S.A. in his younger days mostlyin the late 30`s. many of his family and firnds did also. He broke records and I still have his pencilled works for planning races. Super Elliot was a big name among the files.
some added here. Image

The saddle on the T de F model is a piece of crap (to quote my son).

Those images are a super useful source of information! Was there a date on the catalogue?

Here is a photo of several SA riders, mostly unknown, yet you can spot Phil Thomas and Deane Whitehorn. To the left of Deane is Jack Conyers with the big grin. All but one rider have Elliotts frames, one has Healing. Note two frames have brake holes in forks, yet these are all track bikes. White socks indicated amateurs.
I had met Phil prior to his death, - he was a very kind knowledgable gentleman and very polite. I have also met with Conyers son who kindly showed me numerous photos and scrapbooks of his fathers excellent achievements. Deane is still well and riding the vets races, - still as tough as ever, a very clever competitor... a true champion cyclist of all time.

Cheers, 5*R :wink: .


Not sure about the white socks denoting amateurs. I reckon Phil Thomas turned pro about 10 years before this photo was taken, and, due to the circumstances of his leaving amateur ranks, wouldn't have a bar of them after that.
