Another Vintage Allegro...

This is the second Allegro I have spotted at the Velo. Unlike the first one I saw, this one is frame and fork only, it will be interesting to see how it gets built up (that is unless someone buys it as is). 
Allegro was a Swiss manufacturer, and their bikes would have been quite common in Europe between the 1930s and 1970s. That makes them old enough that, unless you find one that has been well taken care of, some restoration work will likely be required.

A well written, informative account of a Allegro restoration project can be found here.
