1961 Plus

London, 1961

The Plus model was offered from 1960 and featured Experto Crede lugs with extra re-inforcements on the fork crown and the bottom bracket shell. It was not popular and few survive. In the catalog (above), the page featuring the Plus was marred by a rather muddy illustration of the extra bits, but without the lovely Experto lugset; this may account for its lack of sales.

The current owner restored it and fitted the follwing components: Mafac center-pull brakes; Cinelli bar, Ambrosia stem; Campag pedals, hi-flange hubs, Gran Sport mech, Record front changer and seat pin; Unicanitor seat; Stronglight cranks with TA rings.

Note the color-coordinated tires, saddle, handlebar tape, Bowden housing, and pin-striping.
