Well Ed you won't be embarrassed by sharing a ride with Juan Carlos (the present King of Spain). It turns out that Colnago gave him a Carbiturbo! (See the very first image in Rin Negri's "Quando la Bici e Arte". On the other keep an eye out for Felipe ( the current Prince of Spain ) because he got a cool Oro with white tubular decals (image three in the same book). In any case you'll be in good company with Valentino Campagnolo who got a very neat C Record Oro. You can never have too much bling!
