Sirius/Frank Clements

Postby DafyddWW » 30 Jul 2012, 4:20pm

Anyone know anything of the circumstances regarding the demise of Serius of Dudley/Kingswinford, frame builders, run by Frank Clements, which disappeared in about 2002? All my attempts to track down any info have so far failed. He had a link up with Orbit Cycles but they have gone through the washer during recent years so records/personel of pre 2000 are unlikely.

i have it on good authority that their marketing & promotional skills outweighed their frame building by some distance. a frame a friend had built by them years ago required three attempts to get the correct dimensions. that can't be good for cashflow.
