Mystery Lo Pro

Frame:
Simoncini?

More Info:
Gary Proud who built the frame up in the 80's vaguely recalls building it, pretty cool he's still working at Kendell Cycles all these years later. He thinks it might be a Simoncini, but I'm not convinced having an English BB shell and Shimano UFP-10 track ends/fork ends. Spoke to Garry and he thinks the frame was one of a few the shop bought from Ernie Clements in the 80's, as he often sold Dutch and Italian frames to them. Still unsure of the frame's identity, but hoping the mystery will be solved.

Gahhh, why did you have the shifter braze-on taken off? So many unique elements to this, why cut a part off? :(

I see your point but this was never going to be a restoration. Hopefully knowing that the rust was cut out and the frame is now being used is some comfort :)

should have kept the DT shifters IMO, but looks good either way... the DT shifters might get annoying after a while though.

Thanks for the comment. Out of interest why do you think it would get annoying shifting from the bars instead of downtube?

I see your point, although you you won't go as fast shifting from the DT ;)
