The same seller as the margueritta shifter is offering a 1957 Bates Cantiflex repainted frame that looks nice, but includes "Rear Spacing - 126mm to accommodate a 5 or 6 speed freewheel" and "Dual Campagnolo shifter bosses are original as are the various braze-on fittings." http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=420&item=2199187641

I suspect the frame's been respaced, but a question to the list. When did the Campy shifter bosses start being made available for frame construction? Not connected to seller, blah, blah, ...
