Hello all!

Does anyone know anything about Van Hout frames? I have one from http://www.classical-bicycles. I will post pictures later!

I would love to know more about the brand, did they outsource, how much did they make, and when.

From BikeForums I learned they were made in Heist Op den berg somewhere around 1970s, in the same address that nowadays is known as CD-Bikes.

Lugs have "B" "M" carvings, which I believe mean Bocama lugs from France. These look like the long point lugs. Campagnolo dropouts, british bb and a 27.0 seatpost.

I have no idea what the tubing is, guess there's no way to find out. The geometry is good, feels like a true racing frame!
