Hello People,

I got in touch with a Presto connaisseur and learnt somewhat. The frame is probably pre Jan Legrand. Jan Legrand started building in 1972. Possibly the crosses are input by Legrand himself. On the lugs I discovered a little logo saying 'BCM'. This means Bocama. So no Cinelli lugs, but Bocama.

That it is a pre 1972 frame is a little bit a surprise to me. I anticipated on approx 30yrs old, but turns out it is closer to 40(!) Already found the condition very good for a 30yr old frame, but for a 40yr old it is fenomenal. The only marks worth mentioning are where the cableguides were placed on the toptube. Little paintdamage and little surface rust there. Paint is bright, panels all spotless and chrome all spotless. Pretty amazing.

Nice Presto.
Now you need a Jabo, Joco, and a Remy to round out the collection.
