Maker of handle bars, stems, brakes and sundries!
Updated 12.2.2010

      "GB stands for Gerry Burgess. He was a talented rider in the 30's. He began component manufacture just post war with brakes and stems although the early stuff was not up to Continental standards. I am told that he later went into partnership with (possibly?) Altenburger but did not survive into the 1980s."                                    Mark Stevens
