somebody posted earlier about this Pogliaghi:

I had a frame finished just as the one on ebay. It was finely made (careful BB mitering, nice finish) but standard-issue mid-1980's with braze-on front derailleur, 126mm rear spacing, short Camp. rear ends, short geometry, investment cast lugs, etc.

Perhaps unusual for the day, I liked the understated finish, simple single colour with sedate graphics. Very nice stylized "P" panto'd into the fully sloping fork crown.

Last saw it in Ed Litton's shop (didn't need refinishing, so what the ?).


it seems a nice bike of its kind. I'm wondering just when it was made. If the parts are original, and it seems like they probably are (big assumption I know, but..) then this *might* be one of the bikes the Basso brothers made in consultation with Sante, who was in retirement.
