Happy Solstice, all...

Just acquired a beautiful early-60's Swedish-built 'Avanti' road frameset, and can find almost no information relating to this marque....all French-threaded, 22.0mm steerer tube, Nervex pro lugs, all '531',w/ a gorgeous double-plate crown and 22mm round fork blades. Here's the odd part- the frame tubes are not Metric diameter (27.0 seatpost, frame decal is in English, tube diameters are all non-Metric) despite the otherwise all-French design dynamic; originally Campy GS/Record equipped, w/ cottered cranks & Weinmann '999' c-pulls, domed steel seat post, etc. 

If anybody in list-land can provide any data about these bikes, I would be very appreciative.

 Starting Dec. 27th, I will start a series of listings of various odds & ends...memorabilia, obscure small parts, wierd tools, stuff that you MUST own!!! All items will be posted on my Flickr site; prices shown will include CONUS shipping price (unless otherwise indicated). Some of the small stuff will be offered in lots only- c'mon, how can you resist treaures like NOS Universal brake hardware, rim washers, Nervar chainring hardware, NOS shop stickers from Zeus, Clement, Huret...the list goes on! This is for list members (and hangers-on) only, and will run for 30 days. Please...wait for the listing; all will be revealed then!
