Oops, brain-lock. That should have been "two SWISS production frames."

> Two frames that I just don't have time to play with.
> 1) Allegro Special 56cm c-t / 56cm c-c. Probably late
> 60s. Famous tiger/smoke finish. Oiler hole in bb shell is
> filled with silicone sealant. It has all the cool braze-on
> bits including dt stops for bar-end shifters. Best guess is
> it had a mix of Campagnolo and Stronglight parts originally.
> Paint is trashed. Chrome is worse. Except on the headlugs,
> which will clean up well. Whether you repaint, or touch it
> up and ride it, who knows? Comes with original stronglight
> bb bearings and stronglight headset. The frame seems sound

> but I just don't have the time.
> 2) Mondia Special. Early/mid-70s. 56cm c-t/ 56.5cm c-c.
> Includes original Campagnolo bb bearings and steel headset.
> Candy blue with black/white smoke fade, and full
> pinstriping. Chrome is *excellent* throughout. Original
> finish is rough-ish, but nothing like as rough as the
> Allegro

> $350 for both, shipped anywhere in the lower 48.
