Not much history, but they were imported fairly vigorously by Gus Betat Imports in New Orleans, which at one time was an important source for all the cool stuff, Campagnolo, etc. There were a number of models at different price levels , with the top of the line model called the "Stella" with cool star cutouts in lugs etc. Seems like Viner may be still in biz with the usual boring, anonymous tig welded aluminum frames... Yes, here they are:

They might respond to a polite request for replacement decals...
