I was fortunate to learn more of the history of my bike from someone who knew the frame builder well, see the original post and comments here. I’ve finished rebuilding the Aende and am eventually satisfied with it, detailed pics to follow. When researching some of the old school Paramount and Aende riders suggested by Brian i stumbled on some great old shots, not all are of Aende riders but i think they are quality.
Reg Harris. He won the world amateur sprint title in 1947, two Olympic silver medals in 1948, and the professional title in 1949, 1950, 1951 and 1954. He also surprised many with a comeback more than 20 years later, winning a British title in 1974 at the age of 54.
The Late Noel Lilley in action on his Aende framed bike ( One of the first riders to do a 19 minute 10 ), and British Olympic pursuit rider.
