The frames on these models are really just about as good as the Frejus Pro except they are generally made with Falck tubing (db cro-mo). They have a nice laid back geometry. Few have the original components as people recognized the good frames and upgraded. They are the second model and this one sounds late 1960's or early 70's.

This reminds me. Message for Norm Hellman. I have stumbled on correspondence from 10 years ago where I tracked down additional info concerning V.C. Frejus Torino beyond the article you provided me so long ago. I will get in touch.
