IIRC, this was Ron Kitchings own brand. I remember seeing all of Beryl Burton's bikes decked out in this. I always liked their bar end plugs with the expansion screws.

The Milremo brand came about in 1972 when Ron Kitching and frenchman Andre Bertin joined forces.

Yeah, your right..........................I don`t know why I said that :oops: 1972 was when they became european agents for Suntour and later on around mid seventies agents for Dura Ace, just about when I got into cycling.

Milremo was registered as a trademark about 1957, it was a composite of MILan-sanREMO.
