The mystery bike is most certainly an Italvega.

Now as to Bob F's post, I think perhaps the real question is ... Why did Italvegas strip all their own decals off? In other words, I think most of them self-destruct due to the nature of those decals. My Super Special frameset is a wall hanger currently, and I have always been VERY careful with the decals, but since I've owned the frame (maybe 4 or 5 years ... how long has it been Jay?), they have slowly been disappearing. Ever heard of "Jumping" Cholla cactus? Get too close, and it almost seems like their little tufts of spines will jump out and latch onto your skin. Well, the Italvegas have jumping decals. Look too closely, and they almost jump off in front of your eyes!
