Well done. Good steady camera work too (I cannot handle all that modern jerky, jumpy camera stuff). Very nice bikes too. Interesting number of similarities between the Allegro and my '74 Crescent. Oh, and nice Celtic inspired sound track. Well done all around.

Where was it shot? Nice roads and nice trail. I still don't know how to pronounce 'Frejus'.

Thanks for the kind words. This was in Cameron Park and El Dorado Hills, CA. Mostly on Green Valley road. Not sure how to pronounce "Frejus" either. I just took my best shot

Cool video of some great bikes. I'm sure if I ever luck into a Freejus or Allegro, I'll be an instant fan.

I think you got pretty close, Rich. Try this;


Of course, that is the French way of pronouncing it. How the Italians would pronounce it, I have no idea!
I always liked the anecdote of why Emmo Ghelfi named his bikes after a seemingly French town. But of course it was named after the statue in the Piazza Statuto in Torino, down the street from his shop, honoring the workers who lost their lives building the Frejus train tunnel under the Alps, from Italy into France.
Can you imagine that!? In 1870 or whatever it was?

Nice video indeed. I would have liked to see more close ups and discussion of the two bikes, but that's just me.
By the way, how did you date your Frejust to 1963 ??

Thanks RB. The original plan was to have a voice over on the video discussing the bikes and the history of the brands in more detail. I had shot the footage about 3 months ago and couldn't find the time to do anything with it. I managed to squeeze some time in this week. If I get more time in the future, I may revisit the video and add the extra info. I used the Classic Rendezvous site's serial number chart to date the bike.

Thanks FF. Neat bike indeed. I didn't realize they offered the SC in that color way back when, assuming it was only after the Legnano thing,
but see chartreuse is listed in my old catalog reprint.
