DISRAELI GEARS

Torpedo

Torpedo derailleurs were manufactured by a company called Erlotti, based in Milano Italy. They were copies of German Fichtel & Sachs derailleurs manufactured under license. Torpedo was, of course, a sub brand that Fichtel & Sachs used for its famous hub gears.

My, rather vague, guess is that Erlotti produced these gears from the late 1930s until the late 1950s.



Erlotti 1947?
