re: "dave moulton" bikes: sheer numbers have nothing to do with mystique as proven by the fact that only 216 "dave moulton" frames were built.

What's very interesting about the Confente mystique is that although he is Italian he's virtually unknown as a builder in Italy. Even in Verona, where he is from, I only found, over 3 years, a handful of cyclists that knew of him.

Angel Garcia Long Valley, NJ Jerry to anwser your question about the Confente mystique. He had the Italian thing going on. I personally have a McLean and a Moulton (Not a Fuso) in my stable and they are beautiful! But alas no joy or love from the Majority of the crowd.

Happy New Year.
