Hi,

In the attached doc you can see the frame of my first racebike. I've got it from my brother in law. When I took the bike to Fran Groot (former owner of Vitorio, Alkmaar, The Netherlands), the first thing he said was: "That bike was build by Bertus Slesker in 1958) In that period Slesker was the owner of Locomotief bikes in Amsterdam. In the 50's there was also a dutch prof. racing team (Locomotief Vredestein).

My question is whether there is someone who can tel me more about htis frame?

- is it a 50's frame - is it a locomotief - what colors where use originally - other info needed for restoration

thanks
