It is interesting that two new "V" bicycles show up today! This morning, listmember Jonathan Greene sent me the Vittoria above. I didn't have either the Vittoria or the Vigorelli in the Used Bike Buyers Guide. And, the Bird-Bourne discussion from the English brethren has been good too. I've got three Bird makers in the guide, Alec, Ken and Pete. My information says that Ken Bird didn't make frames but decaled the ones made by Bill Philbrook. Since I have no idea where Bourne, the town, is located, I can't comment whether the Bird-Bourne might have been from one of these Bird's nest. Lou Deeter, Orlando FL

In anyone familliar with this make? About a million years ago, a friend gave me a set of decals identical to those on this bike. He said that he got them from Cuevas, and this it was simply a different brand that they used to sell frames under. It seemed to me that he was probably mistaken; it just sounded wrong. In any case, the Vigorelli decals looked cool on my repainted Trek-orelli, until I broke a rear dropout and the frame went back to Trek.<blah>
