Bill Hurlow 'Italia' - 1971
Hand painted 'W B Hurlow' on down-tube, Campagnolo Record side-pull brake which was recommended by B H.
The specification sheet from Bill Hurlow lists the stem as Cinelli, 1A, 9-1/2 cm.
The "Frame and Forks" are listed as "Italia to specifications,
D/tube written O/E (outlined) and (owners) name O/E", where O/E is for Old English.
"Outline" refers to the gold trim around the red O/E lettering on the down tube, and "name" refers to the customer's
name, which in this instance is on the top tube in O/E (a feature common to many WBH's).
The paintwork was done by a sprayer who was known to pin-stripe the McLaren racing cars
Centre: Rear brake bridge
Right: Seat lug wrap detail

Paintwork,lining and transfers are original as done by B H.
Bill Hurlow was fond of his 5-band panel, and he referred to it as "our red enamel panel" in a 1970 letter.
The white paint, the gold pinstripe work, the transfers, the clear-coat and the Campagnolo equipment, are all original.
