Gios was a newcomer to racing bikes when they began to 'sponsor' the Brooklyn team. Up until then, they had made mainly children's and city roadsters. The Brooklyn team bikes came about because of the relationship of the Gios brothers with the main sponsor of Brooklyn. You can read about it on their website: http://www.gios.it
I mentioned earlier today that Marnati was the main frame builder for Gios at the time.
