Webster bikes - anyone know anything about them?

Postby elbowloh » Wed Feb 27, 2013 12:27 pm

Hi all,

Last year I bought a second hand steel-framed road bike, it's got stickers on it proclaiming it to be a "Webster" (there's also a spider-web sticker on the head-tube). I've done lots of googling and can't find anything about this make, apart from Webster of Chesterfield from the 40's, but the logo's not the same and the stickers appear to be 80's or 90s imo.

I've also searched this forum and the only mention i can see of "Webster" is that it's used as a term of endearment on parts of the forum :wink: .

As i said it's still framed, no lugs, looks like it used to have shifters on the down-tube, but it's been converted so it now has STI levers on the bars.

Any ideas anyone?

Just googled some stuff and probably found the same info as you did - you could try taking a photo of the logo and dropping it into google image search and see if that gets any response.

Cheers, but I don't think i'll need a photo, just use that one you've posted, it's spot on!

I looked on that site before, but couldn't see any bikes branded as Websters though.
