Quoth Dale:

"We sold a few Picchios through CDO "in the day". A few purple metallic road frames (model name escapes me) with fluted rear of seat tube for tire clearance, a red metallic tandem (which was very cool), and two Specials (IIRC he only got one small batch of this models) in the Torino city colors (silver with black and yellow seat tube bands)."

My purple metallic Picchio, which I waited for a long time to snag, is a Special (curlicue and star cutouts on lugs and decaled as such) with the full-on crimped tubing - back of seat tube, but also the rear of the fork blades, the rear of the stays, and the inside of the down tube.
