General Information
Claud Butler is fameous for its steel lightweight racers from the 60s and 70s. However, they also made tools, like this, very simple, bottom bracket tool. It was probably made by somebody else and stamped by Claud Butler. The example shown was recovered from a tool box that had not been opened since 1969, which adds some dating detail.

Brand Information(click to expand)
 One of the giants of the British cycling industry, Claud Butler was no one man shop, but rather a large manufacturing business which turned out large numbers of frames.  They produced everything from track and racing frames as well as tandems in both lugged and fillet brazed varieties.  The Claud Butler name and trademarks were purchased by Holdsworth and frames carrying the Butler name were simply rebranded Holdsworth frames.  In the late 1980's a conglomerate which also owned Falcon purchased the naming rights for Holdsworth and Claud Butler and reintroduced the name.
