Alan Shorter (Shorter Rochford) out of North London



"Alan Shorter certainly had a lot of his best frames built by Barry Chick (used by the legend Alf Engers). Barry was probably among the top half-dozen builders of time-trial frames in the 70s and 80s, and was equally at home with bronze-welded frames as he was with lugged ones".

  2. I am selling a SHORTER racing bike on Ebay. Auction ends 2 April 2012. See Ebay item id 260989814118. It is very old and needs restoration.

  3. Although they share the same facial expression, the 'UNITY' rider is not Engers but Tim Stevens, another fast man.
