An American classic; the Shuron Ronsir.

Hello there,
I don't know about you but we're happy to see some green again! Miss Frosty has vanished and the chickens have water rather than a slab of ice in their trough.
Yesterday, we had a consignment of Ronsir, Sidewinder and Freeway frames from the American company Shuron. The Ronsir is an enduring and much loved frame which has been made continuously since 1947 and often crops up in films set in the 1950s and 1960s. Think Kevin Costner in the 1991 political thriller JFK and Matt Damon in the 2006 spy film The Good Shepherd.

The Ronsir is the best selling Shuron frame at  Dead Men's Spex  and we stock it in both tortoisehell and black in a range of sizes, something of a luxury, as when purchasing vintage there is often little choice regarding size or colour. One usually has to adopt the attitude taken by another famous American - Henry Ford "You can have any color as long as it is black."
