I asked this a while back, but was perhaps missed or, perhaps no one had an answer, but has anyone here (besides me) heard or Iride bicycles?

Now before you jump that this must be a ruse, the name is pronounced I-RI-DAY, and is Italian, not 'I ride', the way it looks. A web search has produced nothing much in the way of info.

I've purchased one that looks like it's likely early '80s or late '70s, with a mix of SR and NR components. I've yet to see it (a friend got it for me) but I'm still curious to know if anyone knows the marque.
