Subject: [CR]Bitossi in Procycling and who was Taurus?

I was reading the article on Franco Bitossi in the October 2007 Procycling magazine and was wondering about his bike. I had Cinelliesque graphics but there were no clear shots of the bike. I suspect it is a Taurus because h is shorts legs had TAU in one photo and RUS in another(pages 96 and 98). Y ou can see the bottom of the lettering on the downtube in one shot and it l ooks like the bottom of the letters in TAURUS. Who made TAURUS and why hav e we never seen one in the US?
