Dear Bertin Specialists, The Bertin frame that I purchased from eBay France has just been delivered. I have started a preliminary inspection.

Not yet sure if it has been refinished or not. The paint on the steerer tube matches the forks...now I should check inside the BB shell. No sign of any remnants of decals, or even marks that they have left behind in the paint surface.

One rear drop out has "60" stamped into it, which I assume to be the frame size. There is also "72" stamped in the front of the seat clamp/lug. I have seen this on a yellow Bertin frame that I have seen recently.

Not sure what the drop-outs are yet (Campagnolo or Milremo).

The frame has brazed on gear shift bosses. Are these universal? I have never used these before.

Any help with the stamped number will be much appreciated.

All the best, Peter Rogers
