The binder bolt has a 3/8 inch stem, 1 5/8 inch long, nut 13mm ½" hex head and the bolt is a raised round head. Thread is probably 26 TPI British Standard Cycle Thread (BSCy) and is certainly a 60 degree thread. It is thus very close indeed to 8 x 1.00 mm Metric. The red enamel is missing from this example.

Brand Information(click to expand)
Milremo was one of the brands of Ron Kitching in Harrogate/UK. They offered complete groups including rims and tubular tires. Seems to be relabeled components from different french manufacturers. In Ron Kitching's biography "A Wheel in Two Worlds" (1993) he describes how the Milremo brand arose in the mid-1950s. It started from a commercial clash with Holdsworthy over the importation of D'Alessandro tyres for which Holdsworthy had the UK registered trademark. The name MilRemo was indeed invented as a brand to overcome such disputes and the many items he sold were branded versions from other manufacturers. The name did arise from the Milan-San Remo cycle race. Ron Kitching also records that Andre Bertin, whom he knew well, liked the Milremo name and registered it on the Continent a little while after Ron Kitching did in the UK. The Milremo brand should I think be in the England section of the brand directory on this website!
