This Thread is for a great American Frame Builder named Alvin Drysdale.
I feel like his work is known but underestimated by the lack of history.
Any photos of him or his bikes or serial numbers or models, decals, invoices, etc would help
To start this off, I have a clear photo of him Never before seen.
I've had 4 Drysdales and they are excellent works of fine craftsmanship.

Very interesting similarity between the seat cluster and rear dropouts. I will post photos of my drysdales. Anybody have a clear photo and maybe dimensions of the tubing pattern on the red devil. The pointed arrows that start from the head tube, for future reference.

This is interesting. I did not know there about the Ohrt/Drysedale connection. I have been researching the Ohrt bros for a couple of years now. I have a complete original Velox, an Ace frameset that was resored at Cycleart, and a later Drysedale built with brazed on Campy Record shifters and Nervex lugs. I have two Elswick Hoppers from Hans Ohrts shop and a San Francisco Ohrt with Oscar Egg lugs.
