||Fluted seatstay top-eyes appear
in 1957 & 1958 catalogues
|During 1958 (perhaps for
1959) a new lug set was adopted on the Zephyr, very different to the
original "coronet" style. The top-eyes remain fluted.
|1961 The Cyclone and Zephyr were
effectively road, time trial or track versions of the same
'top-of-the-range' frame. They had the same tubesets and identical
lugs. The Cyclone was the road version, with Agrati or Campag road
dropouts and 73o head / 71o seat or 72o
parallel angles, while the Zephyr had heavy plate track dropouts,
with mudguard eyelets as standard but could be omitted, track fork
crown with round fork blades and 73o parallel angles.
