Chuck,
>From the pictures that I can see in the different web pages you attached I have to exclude my nuovo as a 1967 model. It has the pivot stop brazed on. So a 67 or 68 that would be. Now there is a noticeable difference between the two small wheels ...from all of the ones seen on the reference pictures and mine. The wheels found on mine have also nine individuals "theet" but they have sharp pointed tips rather having a kind of straight flat spots at their outside edges..also mine are split through from their center to their outboard edges...now this could simply be worned-out tired old wheels that need to be replaced I guess..sorry asking such a question that to most of you could be plain evidence!

thanks,
Ronald Manseau,gaspé,Qc.
