The Sun Chris Barber 10 came about when the famous jazz trombonist, Chris Barber ended up sponsoring a cycle team as one of
his roadies was a keen cyclist. The team was around in the late 1960s, Barber was also to sponsor motor racing teams too.
The colour of the machine, I believe was derived from the Lotus car company based in Norfolk. Barber was a keen amateur racer
and used to take part in races using a Lotus Elan from the early 1960s. This machine is very much a mid range replica, the
actual race bikes using 531 tubing on the frames and Campagnolo components. That said the CB 10 is a fine machine and uses
a Truwel tubed frame built at the Carlton factory in Worksop. Its been kept in pretty much original condition, save for the
addition of yellow Bantel guards and the change of the original Huret Alvit to a period correct Simplex Prestige. Its a real
head turner of a bike and is very much a favourite of mine.
