Experto Crede
Tottenham, 1958

This Experto Crede is a daily rider for its owner. He bought it in 1962 and had it renovated in 1964 to original specs (sky blue enamel). The components are mixed: Shimano rear derailleur, Simplex front derailleur, Benelux levers, Stronglight crank, Lyotard pedals, SR stem, alloy seat pin, Weinmann brakes. Of special interest are the Shelwin hubs with bevelled flanges.
