another seatpost question/comment... i recall that the first POST-neuvo record seatpost was the sl, or superlight model. it 'looked' like a nr, BUT had a high polish. by mid-70's this was offered concurrently with a 1st gen. super record post which had the same high shine, along with long flutes, 2-bolt top, and a small bevel area. that sr post morphed into a 1-bolt version, first with shorter flutes, a larger bevel, and with a shiny top section. eventually, this version would appear with a matte top instead. i'm not up on where the logos and engraving appeared on any of these. does anyone know if the sl, (superlight), post ever appeared, ex-vincenza, with the gradiated 10 centimeter marks on the front? i'm not asking about the pantographed aftermarket style, popular on guerciotti's, ciocc's, etc.... by thw way, all my limit line-less neuvo records have steel hardware atop. all with limit lines have alloy parts. all are new. e-RICHIE
