The following is from a 1977 Bike Warehouse catalog:

"Ray Gasiorowski was a finalist in the 1952 Olympics Road Race and was on the American Team in the Tour of Mexico. He raced in Canada and represented the Army in Europe in a racing career from 1946 to 1952. After 20 years with manufacturers Gasiorowski went into his own cycle business in 1973. Now produces over 5 different models."

(#100 Deluxe Touring Frame, #X-100 Custom-designed Frame for touring, racing road or track, #75 Racing, #50 touring, #25 Sport Touring, #10 Economy.)

"All Romic no. 100 and X-100 frame sets are silver brazed throughout with the exception of the exterior brazes such as the fork ends, bridges, etc."

"Italian Fastback seat cluster is typical of Romics no nonsense approach."

Also noted: the top models are described as having copper-plated fork ends. What's up with that?
