Maybe, but I think they were a bit later. We raced them in Canada in around 76-78 and on into around 1980. But I am estimating. Definitely not exact here. Eddie Albert Chappaqua, NY, USA

Best guess is around 1973-75 (only a guess) for Nisi Sludi with glued on dimensional metal badge and divots in rim bed. They were considered the best in their day and retail was over $100 each when a Masi sold for around $825.
