Bob asked:

Why did people with Italvegas strip all the decals off? Answer to this question always seems to be its an Italvega BOB FREITAS MILL VALLEY,CA USA where I will be packing up a storm for a Monday flight to Italy

The decals on Italvega bicycles were very fragile and not clear coated. Unless the frame was waxed regularly and kept out of the sun, the decals always flaked off. Sad but true.

This particular Italvega has been on e-bay and craigslist for some weeks now. The price is set way too high which is why it hasn't sold.

Have a wonderful time in Italy youse guys!!
