The Campione del Mondo 1930-33 is so strange considering the many Frejus world championships over the years. My late 50's track bike must have listed 10 or more championships on the decals. It is also hard to imagine of a pump made from what I presume to be styrene during the 30's. In that era I think of celluloid and bakelite plastics. In other words I would presume a 1930's pump is made of metal!
