    What's the Mead connection with Liverpool over here?
    Were bikes manufactured or assembled there, or just retailed?

    My uncle has a Mead Crusader that we are attempting to get some info on.

    - Year?
    - Approximate value?
    - Any other helpful info would be greatly appreciated.

    What thread and/or which member is the resident expert on Mead Crusader

    Thanks in advance for the assistance/advice
