I think the bike with the 4-leaf clover on the fork was a Rolls, another Colnago-built side brand a la Colner. I'll see if I can dig out a photo. I think e-richie was the point-man on that ID a few years back, if that helps the archive search.

The diminutive Italian climber Panizza rode a Colner in the Giro in the mid-seventies; they had a spade insignia.

In one of those World Cycling Productions videos about Merckx there is footage of Molteni bikes which I believe are also Colnagos that have spade insignia, on the fork crowns and also pantographed on the front of the seatpost.
