Subject: [CR]Info wanted on ttt seat post

I have an interesting ttt seat post here, which I have never seen before. I'm wondering if anyone has ever seen one, or can give me any information on it, or what bike it would have come on originally.

It's appears to be on topic era, is alloy, has a fluted mast, and has a unique clamp. It uses a single recessed allen bolt in front to adjust the pitch, and then a bolt that comes through from the side, to clamp the adjuster in place (which slides along a curved slot in front). A seperate bolt secures the seat clamp halves around the seat rails. It's engraved "3ttt" and 26.2 on the back of the mast, and also "Brev Italy". "ttt" on the head. The mast/adjuster boss is cast from a single piece like an NR post, and then the mast is machined down. The area where the adjuster boss transitions to the mast is very thin. It's pretty light.

Thanks in Advance.
