Lou, I think you are the official list Grandis maven. What the basis story on Grandis? Origin? Racing involvement?

I have a 70s Grandis and the seatstay cap treatment doesn't have the script lettering that this one does. I've got a Grandis stem with the same script lettering that I think came from a 1980s bike. This one has a wonderful G and wreath on the fork crown. I also would love to see the screw on aluminum brake cable guides in person. I believe that Grandis were among the more well made of the Italian makes. Nice rides too. Lou Deeter, Orlando FL
