Steve asked about ID on an ItalVega: snip<Here are the features: Fork has chrome crown and lower halves, steel rims, non-identified 3-piece hubs, unknown group Campy front derailleur and dt shifters, ttt stem, Nervar cottered cranks, and Universal 61 brakes. No chrome on frame. Neither does it have any tubing identification or model indicators. So, I don't think it's a boat anchor, but neither is it in the "mojo" category, but I don't know. Would like to know. > end snip

This sounds very much like a Nouvo Sport. It was the entry level ItalVega and rode nicer than a lot of the other bikes in its price range.
