According to one of my german Breugelmann Catalogs of 1993 were Pogliaghis were offered, Sante sold his marque to the Basso family (or brothers) who "resurected" the name. There is a whole page covering this story in the catalogue. I might look it up and can give some more details later. So we just know that the transfer happened in between 1976 and 1993.

Pogliaghi Pista frame has been offered on eBay: #230148399900. I know nothing about Pogliaghi save what I can see on CR's site, and what I've gleaned from the books: "The Custom Bicycle'" and The High-Tech Bicycle", which isn't very much.


This is a legit Pogliaghi track frame, probably from 1976 (give-or-take a year). Finding a fork will be difficult, but not totally impossible.

I'd harass various frame-painters until one shows up. CyclArt might have one they'd sell you right now..they have a huge fork-grave-yard...other higher-volume painters probably do too.

Makes you wonder what happened to the fork. These generally came with bespoke forks.

the mid-70s Pogliaghis don't have quite the coolness factor of the late-60s/early 70s bikes with the older graphics package..but they're entirely legit. Pogliaghi did not retire from the business until at least 1980, or so my information has said. I'd be curious to know if anyone has good evidence of when he left his shop and turned it over to Rossin (?) or whoever... I know Basso had the marque later. Still does
