Lawrence Road, Liverpool, England
W. G. Twiddle was a small builder
known for stiff, rather close coupled
frames. Twiddle frames are known to have dated from the 1930s. Bill
Twiddle was a member of the now defunct Walton C and AC in the
1920s, later joining the Liverpool Century in 1930. His son Bill
junior was also a rider.
"I bought the bike in 1978 (23" C/L to T.T.) bringing it over to
the US when I
was transferred here in 1979. It was ridden (much of the time on
training rollers) till 1995 when I had the frame powder coated by "
Millers " in Atlanta (White). On my next yearly trip to England, I
went to Twiddle's workshop to get
a full set of transfers. But that section of Town had been
my understanding was that he had died."
