Listers - First, thanks to all who answered my questions about Rickert colors!


There must be a few who appreciate ItalVega bikes out there... Does anyone have a brochure for mid '70s Italvega?

I'm wondering about a repainted frame I've got that has "SuperSpeciale" decals, when it looks like a "SuperLight" model to me... Original paint SuperSpeciale frames I've seen didn't have the diamond cut-outs in the in the lugs and fork crown, or the large slots cut in the BB shell.... or the drilled drop-outs that this frame has. Was there a late version of the SuperSpeciale that looked much like the SuperLight, or did the previous painter just apply whichever decals were in stock? Also, what colors were originally available on SuperLights (I have one that's a greenish tint silver)?

I'm getting ready to send several frames out for "Spring Painting".... Thanks!
