Mystery Lightweight Frame Find Today 50s?,Anyone Help
Picked up this rather nice vintage lightweight frame today,painted by brush poorely,have removed some paint to reveal either a black or dark brown finish.
No holes for headbadge.
Hopefuly the Forks to match will surface from his vast collection,waiting on a call to search for it in his shed.
It looks like an early 50s frame,very light,pencil thin seat stays
Nervex Pro Lugs
Underneath the BB shell is engraved "Nervex"
Aswell as frame number 59 3064 022 E38
Also 290 on LH rear dropout
Very nice rear dropouts,but cannot see any engraving
Weird looking braze-ons on the rear seat tube,Downtube bosses for drinks bottle cage?
Please see photos for reference
Looks a highly skilled frame build
Hopefully someone here can shed some light on it's brand and frame builder.
