Hello Pasquale. Proctor was a frame builder here in Edmonton in the 70's and 80's. Along with a
fellow named Townsend, they produced quite a few excellent quality frames. Most were sold at
Townsend's family Shop (High Country) but were popular all over western Canada and parts of the US.
They also trained a fellow named Jim Moulden, who later went on to found "the hardcore mountainbike
store" and still produces numerous Moulden frames to this day. You have a rare and treasured item
there my friend..... enjoy!
