Chain Oiler 1951

Italian star Fiorenzo Magni, known as "de Leeuw van Vlaanderen" (the Lion of Flanders), on his way to winning his third consecutive Ronde van Vlaanderen (Tour of Flanders). Note the heavily-padded handlebars, oversized aluminum bottle, Simplex derailleur, Universal "Extra" brakes, plump tubulars, and gonfleuer.

Notice especially the clamp-on chain oiler... one of these sold on eBay last week!
>From "Miroir Sprint" No.251, 2 April 1951.
