He would smile thinking of the money he got from Rossin for the right to use his name for such frames. BTW: When I was at the (famous) Bruegelmann shop near Frankfurt (Germany) a few month ago they had lots of Basso made Pogliaghi frames on sale (~350 EUR) which look more like the "real ones" (flat fork crown, round fork blades,...).

I can't help wondering what Sante would think:
although, that said, I suppose if the frame sold for a lot of money, he would have been happy enough.
Still, his comments in "the Custom Bicycle" suggest that he had some fairly firm ideas of aesthetics as well as design, and this frame isn't it..
