Ted Ernst mentioned that he once carried these makes: Paramount, Durkopp, Diamant, Umberto Dei, Stella d'Italia, Bauer, Express, Gold Rad, Automoto, Leon Rapide, Urago, Helyette, Peugeot, Rabeneick, Fiorelli, Rickert, Olmo, Bianchi, Legnano, Raleigh, Carlton, etc.,

I like to see lists like this because it helps me fill in gaps for the Used Bike Buyers Guide. In this case, there were several makes that I did not have in the guide. The one that jumped out at me was Stella d'Italia. I show a Stella from France. But, this is the second reference I've seen to a Stella in Italy. Does anyone know whether there were two different companies or two branches of the same company? Lou Deeter, Orlando FL
