In 1958 frame builder Stan Etherden and track coach John Barclay set up Jensen Cycles at 92 Whitehorse Road. They continued in business until around 1970. Concentrating only on the top end lightweight scene may have contributed to their demise.
Jensen had their following with top time trialists such as Barnet rider Joe Mummery (seen image on left) but perhaps their most famous association was with Dave Bonner who rode a Jensen before turning professional for Condor.
Frame numbers are prefixed by the year then the total build number ie 61310, 63710, 661012 and shows a steady output over this period.
