I used to get things done in Italy by a fellow who has been pantographing bits for over 30 years. It was however far from easy to work with him. He was already retired when I was getting him to do things for me. He was worried that he might risk his pension if the authorities knew he was still working, so he insisted on hand-delivery of the parts to be pantropgraphed and then insisted on being paid in cash and only cash.

File comment: Not only did he do teh components, he also engraved the lugs, BB shell and fork crown

Don't be fooled by the quality of the photograph, this doesn't look that great I'm afraid.

Is this a 'beauty is in the eye of the beholder' type of thing?

Getting my winter coat,
