It should perhaps be pointed out that Ed's bike is a cambio corsa bike and not a Paris-Roubaix model.

I can give you a bit of history regarding this particular frame. The lugs, drop-outs and such came from what I believe was an early 1950's Aquila frame. I had bought the frame sight unseen in Italy and it turned out to be totally shot, so bad in fact that a repair was not viable. Ed decontructed the frame and retrieved the lugs, drop-outs and fork crown. He then used the cambio corsa dropout jigs that Roland Della Santa has and built himself the frame. This worked out very well as Ed is definitely taller than your average Italian from the 50's and would have had great difficulty to find himself a large enough frame otherwise. Ed still has a few more cambio corsa dropout frames in his workshop, so if you want a made to measure Ed Litton cambio corsa bike, it is possible.
