Subject: [CR]More on Unica Nitor (Green)

Hi all,

In 1961 and after much deliberation on whether to fit a green or orange model, I bought a green Unica Nitor (Yes, it was two words) for

my tailor made Fred Dean frame.

I reasoned that the 'nose' of the orange version could appear to be .....how shall I put this....a bit of unintended exposure of one's private part.

I was a 14 year old Mod. To whom looking cool was all.

In fact I chose a Fred Dean (of York Road, Battersea, London), rather than a more locally built Carpenter (of Kingston) because Fred used a Bauhaus like, san serif logo, applied to - wait for this - the top tube.

Mr Carpenter, like everyone else, signed the seat tube.

Anyone out there with a similar machine?
