This frame has a Singapore badge and I received this message via a third party – I don’t know the name of the sender:
Hi Hup Teck was an importer of mainly Japanese and Italian bikes and accessories, based in Singapore in the 50’s and 60’s. Hup Teck’s shop was very popular with the RAF and army cyclists and prices were about half of those in the UK The Frejus was probably bought back to the UK by a servicman. I regularly sent tubulars and Campagnolo equipment bought from Hup Teck to RAF mates who had returned to the UK
