1959 Colnago Freccia (the Arrow). Rare one.

Not too many of these have survived. "E." Colnago.

@3alarmer: A Rudge with Nervex lugs. I don't think I've ever seen that, before. Very nice collection, with the possible exception of Fat Freddie's Cat.

There's no decal on the headtube of this bike. For some odd reason it's placed on the seat tube.

I just dropped some 5/32" ball bearings in the holes with a tiny drop of super glue. It's worked great.

Restoring a 1973 Jeunet Captivante gas pipe frame with that same head decal. Haven't been able to find it anywhere, just the chrome variant. Anyone know the story?

I can't tell you anymore about the bike. It was one bought from a club mate, who has since passed. He rode that thing on club rides, no brakes, about a 72 inch gear, up and down hills. putting the rest of to shame.

He was. He was a Welshman by the name of Tom Jones, no kidding. He lived down the road from me outside Paris, Ontario.This is the Welsh Dragon he put on the seat tube of the bike.
