Extra details For sentimental reasons connected with my teenage years I had always wanted a Whitaker and Mapplebeck frame but nothing came my way. In the 1950s W & M became Pennine when Whitaker left the company so this Italia is filling the gap. There is an article on W & M included in 'Classic Frame Builders'
