Eddie and son Mike Bosomworth for a start. The business was taken over by Brian Ogilvy in the late 1980's.

I think Liam O'Brien was in about that part of the country, I don't know if he ever built for Bosomworth though.

Mike Bossomworth is the owner at avanti Plus in Rotorua, he may know more on your frame, or give you a name on who built it

The signature and dates line up with it being a Brian Ogilvy built bike. Serial number is pretty hard to read.
I will take it into Mike someday when I get back to NZ.
