I think Jerry mentioned me. Mr. Galmozzi told me Van Looy won the world championship in 1960 or 1961 with Faema -Galmozzi bicycle. And Chuck Schmidt showed us a photo of Van Looy riding a Flandria in 1961 or 1962 which seemed to have same color scheme as that of typical Galmozzi. Then I asked Mr. Galmozzi whether Van Looy's bike had decals of Galmozzi or not but he did not reply.
    Galmozzi frames after 1960s had the world champion bands. When an OEM bike (a Flandria by Galmozzi) won , the true builder could put the bands on his frames? I don't know the rule.
