Another vintage bike catalogue from another famous English framebuilder.
Jack Taylor produced his first frame in 1936, and the family continued to build frames until the 1990’s. They were well regarded for their quality, enough for my dad to spend £430 in 1977 money (£2,700 in today’s quids, or $4,900 in Aussie dollars) on a Jack Taylor tourer with a custom built frame.
My dad was a pretty frugal sort of bloke, so for him to spend that much money on a bike he must’ve been pretty impressed.
He never rode the Jack Taylor much, I think he preferred his Bob Jackson, or maybe he was just saving the Jack Taylor for best. It’s still sitting in my mum’s garage, waiting for me to restore it.
