Note: "Maximum" model, serial number 10.

Thanks to reader for Ferdinand for photos and the following information about Cratoni: "Cratoni was a little bike manufacturer located in Stuttgart, southern Germany. However, I once read that they let their top of the line frames be built in Italy by Daccordi. By the way, it must have been one of their last lines of production. In the early 90s they stopped building frames and started making bike helmets instead. The company still exists but sadly they can not provide any information about their frames. Some details to the frame: it is full chromed, the wires are led through the seat tube and I bet they didn't manufacture to many of them."
