Will these bolt to downtube braze-on bosses?

I have acquired a pair of these rims engraved 'CLEMENT ALBIONE 26 X 1 1/4 - MADE IN ITALY' These date from 1949/1950 and were clearly made for the British market. I believe that they were imported into Britain by Beretta & Penney

JML - This model number was never made in the hidden spring version. Those were introduced in 1988 and had model number that began with the letters 'BA' (BRake).  Albeit from the front view they are very similar.
Campagnolo 1045/a, Record Superlegero (Narrow)systemBuilder12/10/2017 11:44 PM
I have a superleggera seatpost (from CR list member). It weighs about 225gm. It has the same clamping hardware as a super record (alloy cradle, alloy top-part, extra machining on the pivot inserts). The main pivot for the cradles is drilled through, like a super record. The top of the post has a polished, ~3mm, tapered part, in the transition to the casted part. Most importantly, the post is thinner-walled and you can see it by lookup up the tube of the seatpost. This is how you can identify one.

Rear hubs were the French standard 122mm OLN width. Front hubs were 96mm wide vs. the 100mm wide standard.

Milremo was a trademarked brand name shared by Cycles Andre Bertin in France and Ron Kitching in the UK. They had a lot of Milremo private labeled products in common plus each company had items exclusive to their marketplaces.
Simplex SJ A222bicyclebits0112/09/2017 05:29 PM
The SJA 222 works very well. Shifts are quick and easy on a double. The braze-on attachment is very cleanly cast and accurate in fit to the single bottle braze-on attachment point.

Stronglight (two-bolt aero; quill style)KevRide12/08/2017 03:47 AM
AFAIK Vitus 971 is a type of steel tubing, not an aluminium frame designation. Some Vitus aluminium frames have conventional seat post clamps (early 979 for example), and later ones have a grub screw fixing, so no real need for a quill post. I've never seen an ALAN or Vitus fitted with one. The only bike I've ever owned which had one of these quill posts fitted was a 1980s Peugeot Galibier - steel framed. Nice to see this one has its original allen key - on the Galibier I had to modify a standard allen key as it was impossible to adjust it otherwise!
Shimano D-600 Titlistpstock12/02/2017 10:09 AM
a Google search takes you to the golf ball name which brings you back to the original meaning: "The name Titleist is derived from the word "titlist", which means "title holder"."
