Constructed of Reynolds double butted 531 DB tubing with Prugnat lugs and fastback seatstays it features a cast fork crown and Campagnolo dropouts.
I was asked by a website visitor what I knew about the history of this marque. This is what I have discovered: Geoffrey Butler Cycles is the name of a bike shop in Croydon, UK. It has been around for a long time and is still there and has a web site and everything. It was started by one Geoffrey Butler. There is some suggestion that Geoffrey was the brother of Claud, of Claud Butler bicycles. Geoffrey Butler Cycles has long had a "house brand" bicycle built for them, from at least the 60s through the 90s. In the late 60s the bikes were built by a number of local builders. One whose name is frequently mentioned is Cliff Shrubb, who is a somewhat renowned English builder. The fastback seat stays on this bike appear to be a Shrubb trademark.
This Geoffrey Butler has a 58cm frame and has the following components:
