It's paint has just been strip! Now, we are able to inspect closer and see the damage clearly.

Filling up brass on the punctured rear stay.

Smoothing out the rough surface.

Got this frame from an Italian
Unfortunately, there's no headbadge
Bought a period correct reproduction decal set that comes with the headbadge (decal)
Guess have to live with that!

I also bought the very hard to find Campagnolo derailleur (suicide shifter) with matching hubs for it.

The paint is finally dried

Once the chrome is expose, it looks much blink blink!

Need a little touch up and a bit of polishing 

Should be ready to seat in my display rack

Very nice head tube. Went over to meet a friend and happy to find this Frejus. It is small size but with a original head badge.
