Rauler it is believed worked for Colnago before setting up on his own - the standard of workmanship looks to be equally good. $245 Photos at http://images.andale.com/f2/118/129/2070911/1086508359929_Rauler_frame.jpg http://images.andale.com/f2/118/129/2070911/1085632499387_Rauler_details.jpg

SIMPLEX STEEL SEATPIN - measured with a vernier calliper it works out at 26.4/26.6mm and should fit many French frames with metric dimensioned tubing. The shaft has some fine pitting and there is a little pitting to the top and fittings also; the badge is close to perfect. The Simplex steel seatpins are really rather rare and were introduced in 1959 and running through to the early 1970s. $85 Photos at http://images.andale.com/f2/118/129/2070911/1084843113003_Simplex_steel_seat pin.jpg

SUPER CHAMPION OSGEAR c1936/7 3-speed The Super Champion gear was the first derailleur to be allowed in the Tour de France in 1937 after the regulations on gears was relaxed and was the gear of choice of most road racers pre WWII and in the immediate post WWII period. When imported into the UK they were called Osgears. These gears are very rare and give a road racing machine of the late 30s - early 50s a wonderful distinctive appearance. I will supply a copy of instructions for setting up the Osgear. It comes complete with the original Super Champion chainwheel guide, Super Champion spoke disc and most rarely the original Super Champion freewheel with 15, 17, 18T and French threads. The gear itself is only very lightly used and the freewheel teeth also only show light/medium wear and is perfectly useable. $225 Photos at http://images.andale.com/f2/118/129/2070911/1083024567021_Osgear_Super_Champ ion.jpg http://images.andale.com/f2/118/129/2070911/1084976970567_Osgear_cata.jpg
