TO: Richard Jenkins and all: Regret to say, no photographs are available because I do not own a camera.

TO Lou and all: "Bologna" is stated on the foil sticker head badge. Head badge central figure is that of the fountain staute of the god Poseidon, the "patron" and symbol of Bologna - as I am given to understand from tourist level library research; historians' knowledge invited. Head badge also states "Los Angeles" and depicts the Olympic rings. I presume 1932. The LA Olympics association is another mystery.

Thanks. Richard Cielec Chicago, Illinois wrote: Richard, all I have in the Used bike guide is Villa, Italy, so if you find something that nails Bologna as the source, I'll add that. Lou

The situation is that I am illiterate of Italian yet, I am trying to research an Italian made bicycle. So, I could use assistance. I can provide particulars Off List; however, briefly - The bicycle is the brand "Villa". The only known-to-me example of one is the frame&fork&bits perhaps circa 70's I have. The shop "Cicli Villa" in Bologna may have been the source of the bicycle. I have need of establishing a dialogue with the shop in order to pursure the research. Internet search via Google on "cicli villa" did not return relevant data. Any assistance would be welcome and valued. Thanks.
