Brom­fi­ets is an ar­ti­cle on a col­lec­tor of Ital­ian mopeds. His name is Dany Bouche and he lives just south of Brus­sels. I was amazed to see he owns the orig­i­nal Itom 50cc ma­chine raced by the first fe­male TT com­peti­tor, Beryl Swain! The bike is in beau­ti­ful orig­i­nal con­di­tion as you can see from the black and white pho­to­graph above. I’m very glad that this bike has been saved from obliv­ion!
