He moved premises a few times and this is reflected in the decals, where it can be possible to identify which shop a particular frame was built at.
Dave used the emblem of a Swan for his head badge and this was also pantographed into the seat stays on some frames. The use of the Swan is due to his first shop location being located in the county of Bucks which used the emblem of a swan.
