I picked up a bike this week and was hopeing someone might know something on the frame. It appears to be from the early 70's maybe late 60's going by the reynolds 531 sticker style. It was world champion bands on the seat tube which appear original however the downtube appears to be a later sticker that says Couanon and also has the champion rainbow but is an actual sticker not a transfer. The head badge which is a transfer says G. Barale and Bordighera and has a rider with a rainbow behind him. I bough the bikes for the components which were a stronglight crank, campy gran sport and mavic g4 rims with campy hubs. Don't know if the manufacturer can be determined by the info given but is this frame collectable or better off as a winter beater with the components going else where. Thanx. -Russell Roth
