I have a very cleanly made 1990 Pogliaghi frame that appears to have very much the same decals as the black one (mine is SLX tubing). Similar looking lugs as well, except with fast-back seat stays. The fork crown is also the same. Perhaps the black one is a late 80s and the white one is earlier? (Contrary to Ed's and Wayne's comments) Any idea what tubing the white one is made from?
