He was a track racer and also had a road bike companion Paramount that he wrecked in the early 70's. Wish I had it for parts. He was still riding both at that time so a few things like wheels and probably the seats had changed. It's now Itlalia and I think the originals were Brooks? I'm waiting for a late 30's Schwinn catalog repro to arrive so I can tell what's changed.

Good eyes - the back nipples are 2 cm and the fronts 1.6. Thw wheels are std metal types with no brand and the tires, which I've never changed, are Hutchinson. Here's a closer view.
