Presto E.Stroober Amsterdam

A Presto racing bicycle, made in Amsterdam/Netherlands in the seventies. The head badge shows the flag of Amsterdam and the typical Presto letters/font. Presto is still located in Amsterdam as a bike shop, i am not sure if they are still building frames. In the seventies, famous frame builders like Jan Legrand (who later worked as the master frame builder for the TI Raleigh team) or Peter Serier were building for Presto. Unlike any other Presto frames i know, this one has some very unique down tube decals, which where not common.

Very nice! This Presto isn't at all related to the NJS Presto frames, correct?
