hi all!

some time ago, someone gave me an italian race bike for helping her moving to a new flat. the bike is nearly fully equiped with rino components, even the saddle...

what i like to know, does anybody know the frame manufacturer? the logos say something like 'ecardi' (however the 'e' in front of the logo is mirrored so the open side is to the left...). the frame is of course lugged steel, no tube decals, fully chromed and the main tubes laquered in a shiny bronze.

i saw such a frame on ebay once, the seller said 'ecardi' means enzo cardi and that this was a former giro participant. i googled myself a bit, the only one i found is ezio cardi, participant in 1973, today propably owner of a bike shop in bardolino, italy.

thanks a lot
