Who is Fritz Bruhlmann ?

Who is Fritz Bruhlmann ? I just acquired a frame with his name on it on eBay. It looks like SLX tubes, the lugs are totally beautiful, Campagnolo dropouts also. Anyone know anything about this frame ? I can post some more photos of it. Thanks, I'm new here, however, I've been riding for years.

Apparently he's a Swiss wheelbuilder and bicycle mechanic. I can't find any references to him as a framebuilder, though.

That's a gorgeous frame.

Thanks to Stan !

Thanks Stan for the reply. I guess I should have just Googled him. The spelling in English without the umlaut is Fritz Bruehlmann, a pro mechanic. I got his e-mail off his own web-site and I will try to talk to him about this bike. Anyone else who might know something, thanks !

Original Gruppo ? World Champion ?

Wondering what might be the original gruppo on this. I've contacted the seller, I'll see if he gets back to me or even knows. Also, it has world champion stripes on the seat tube. Maybe you can see them in the first photo. Anyone know ? Thanks !

From the quality of the frame and the downtube shifters, it would just about have to be Campy Record.
