(1) First, the only bike I knew for sure was Falck was a fine beast. Seamless, and with a Falck symbol on the tube set (upper end of down tube).  It was, if I recall correctly, an oval like Columbus, with a sort of outline/hollow T emblem that actually looked more like a 3-lobed Roots blower impeller (if you follow that trivia!).

I too have seen this decal you are referring to, but interestingly enough on two very different beasts (1) a Mid-60s OLMO and (2) an early 80s ICS, which i believe is Swiss made.

Hey Nick, wasn't that a Falck decal on the Legnano you brought to Cirque? I didn't notice it when we were moving the bikes around but I think it was Charles Andrews or Alan Bernstein who pointed it out to me later.
