I had promised to myself not to post any more today, but...
Aldo Ross asked about my Learco Guerra. Indeed, that is the bike featured on Alex' web site. The article also appeared, with photos, in On The Wheel # 11, Oct/Nov. 1999. (Back issues may be available, check http://www.onthewheel.com). However, the bike was repainted before I ever saw it, so I wouldn't use it as a reference for originality. Somebody in Japan has an all-original Paris-Roubaix-equipped LG, which has the same color scheme (correct decals, though), except that one is off-white where mine is white.
I, too, would be interested to find out more about people who have one or know of one.
