Charles Terryn

This is, I believe, the work of Charles Terryn sometime mechanic to Eddy Merckx. I have always believed that if a job involved a great deal of extra work for no particular advantage Bill Philbrook would have done it just to show that he could and it seems that Terryn was cut from the same cloth. And why the two holes? surely not for lightness.
