Thank you T-Mar.

I think the damaged frame I had must have been the Flitzer as it had no tab.

One brand name I saw for these BITD was Cal Clipper.

Suggest a date of 1971.

Reflectors are an add-on kit; cycle is pre-CPSC.

Had not previously encountered an indication of a relation between Ambrosio S.p.A. and Officine Mecchaniche Giostra. Do you have an additional information on this?

Thanks...

Thanks for sharing this.

I like the look of the colour.

What make are the fingertips it is wearing? AFAIK Zeus/Alfa never offered a set.

Her pedals look to be Notario.
