That's interesting !

3 things. .???

Did most have their bell on the stem in those days
what was the purpose of the metal stand under the saddle nose
did Gnutti mark all their hubs or only the higher end ones

Always enjoy looking at the different Marques. Thanks

bell: one common mounting point.

saddle stabiliser: fairly rare on road machines. normally used on steher bicycles. those riders are pushing HUGE gears.

gnutti: lots of debate and questions there!

there were ordinary quality italian road hubs which came through from the mid-1960's through the early 1970's which had no markings whatsoever. on some of the hollow axle examples the skewers would be gnutti which naturally led folks to assume this was the manufacturer.

gnutti did indeed do private labelling. had one of their splined chainsets which was marked bauer. some of the hubs marked with the name of a bicycle in the thread listed below were likely produced by them.

@iab and @amirinisrael much better qualified to speak on this topic...

Funny that an Austrian bike would be named after an area in England. The victorious isle must have been in fashion in that part of the post-war era.
