1950s Colnago "La Freccia" (Arrow).

1950s  Colnago La Freccia, (ARROW), with Colnago FM Headset.  Down tube and seat tube have "1957 Campionato  Lombardia Dilettanti" decals.
*Bottom Bracket:  Italian 68 mm. 
*Droputs are 1st Generation Campagnolo Gransport with 4 mm adjuster screws.  These dropouts were produced only  in 1950-51.  This may have been because the oversized 4 mm shoulders were vulnerable to breakage and  the  Derailleur hanger had an impractical  4 o'clock position  stop, as illustrated in last foto.   The hanger  was removed.
In 1952, Campagnolo offered dropouts with shorter 4 mm shoulders and eventually a 7 o'clock derailleur hanger positioned stop.

Late 40s Brenna (BSA Brambilla Bits) Frame with lotsa Patina!

Circa Late 1940s " Arisiano" Brenna BSA Frameset  54 cm c-c.   55 cm top tube.
-Internal brake and rear derailleur cable routing.
I am told Brenna was located near the Brambilla shop in the 1940s-50s.   
He apparently acquired BSA frame bits, parts  and BSA decals from Brambilla.

Simplex Dropouts, Simplex TDF Shifter and rusty Brenna Headset included.
Paint and decals are in decent condition. 
Post-war chrome is TOAST everywhere, except Simplex dropouts.
Original chrome elsewhere peels like sunburnt skin!
This bike shows excellent craftsmanship and is worthy of restoration.
Here is a link to a 50s Brenna:
