Subject: [CR]Andre Bertin enthusiasts/owners: help needed!

Those list members who don't automatically delete everything without Campagnolo or Masi in the subject line ;-) might recall that I've been trying to identify a mystery frame.

I've discovered that it might be a Bertin. Comparing my frame with those in a 1960 Ron Kitching catalogue, they have the same:

* lugs * frame angles * hollowed Stronglight BB * Stronglight headset (P3?) * seat tube/top tube length * ring-type pump peg * fork crown * drop outs

If anyone has a Bertin from the 50s or 60s could they please contact me so I can pick their obviously cultured brains. If anyone can point me in the direction of Bertin frame photographs, that would be great, too.

Thanks, Bruce
