F. W. Evans started his original workshop in 1921 specializing in both touring and racing machines. F.W. died in 1944 but the business carried on and is now a chain of bike shops in and around the London area. My thanks to everyone who has contributed to this page and and special thanks to Evans enthusiast Masakazu Sato who provided much of the literature.
