I did a quick Google search and came up with a link that referenced Regina as SOCIETA ITALIANA CATENE CALIBRATE REGINA S.P.A., CORSO MAGENTA, 46-20123 MILANO, Italy. Looks like Regina is just part of the company name. Perhaps the abbreviation S.I.C.C. wa intended to obfuscate the fact that the freewheels were actually being made by Regina. BTW, the reference I found was a patent announcement for an electromechanical bicycle transmission, granted in 2000. http://www.delphion.com/cgi-bin/viewpat.cmd/US06047230__?MODE=fstv&OUT_FORMA T=pdf The device incorporates six sensors, a computer, a shift motor, and operator controls & display. Maybe someday bike mechanics will have to purchase OBD-III scanners from the friendly Snap-On man! (Your 1996 or later smog-maker incorporates OBD-II technology--On-Board Diagnoctics.)
