1952 Frejus Sport Lusso joins the collection

This beautiful and unrestored Frejus ‘Sport Lusso’ model (luxury sport in English) has just recently arrived courtesy of her former owner Mario Erlotti of Milan. The production year of this Frejus has been dated to 1951/52 and looks to still be fitted with all of its original components with the exception of the saddle and tires which are typical wear items.

Some photos to enjoy as I return to develop this post a little further.

Balilla steel brake callipers branded for Frejus.

The Palma leather saddle is in excellent condition and correct to the period of the bike however it was typical for Frejus to have their saddles ‘branded’ with their own name during these years, irrespective of the actual manufacturer, so I suspect it may be a replacement rather than the original.
