Wester Ross frame 295.

John Butters has kindly sent me details of his Wester Ross.

Frame 295 was a cancelled order and John bought the frame from John Connell after Wester Ross Cycles had ceased trading. It has been re-sprayed several times by Charles Ralph of Alves Framesets near Elgin, Morayshire. John retired shortly after he bought the frame now spends three or four months of the year cycletouring! John's trips include: New Zealand most years, including End to End and all the unsealed routes such as Mavora Lakes and the Rainbow. Also, Rome to Home, Florida to Canada, Barcelona to Bergen, Roscoff to Santander and many of the sustrans routes.
