Benotto 'Cromor' - 1978

Owned by: Malcolm Summers

Benotto 4

Malcolm bought the frame which was said to be 1978 but has found out that it is actually much later
 as the Cromor tubing was not introduced until late 1980's.  He now plans to rebuild it with appropriate equipment for that date
 and will submit new images when it is done.
