Somec in Ted’s Workshop

Nipping in to Ted’s Workshop the other day I caught a glimpse of this lovely Somec Road frame, and I’m afraid I’m a bit of a sucker for anything with matching pantographed components. I don’t know too much about Somec other than it started off as the SOcieta MEChanica in the 1960, brainchild of the mechanic Oliviero Gallegati, and was quite small scale in production of traditionally built steel bicycles. Nowadays I’m sure it has been bought by a larger organisation to make these reasonably generic racers but I think that this little beauty is something quite special, I like it anyway
