I have to say, I'm very impressed with just how high this Pogliaghi is going..

http://ebay.com/<blah> geName=ADME:B:WNA:US:1123

Nice bike, but not the really early style most prized by some of us.

And am I wrong, or are those panto'd parts a little anachronistic? would this bike have come with those parts? Or were they installed later? It'd be interesting to know if the panto'd stuff showed up by the late 70s on Pogliaghis..I had thought that was an 80's artifact.

It always struck me that pantographing and similar decoration on Pogliaghis was somehow not consonant with the track-racing fame of the marque. Such decoration seeming a bit effete for a marque like this. I can't help wondering if that sort of thing didn't end up on Pogliaghis after the maestro had retired..if that were true (and I have no proof to offer), then those parts would post-date that frame somewhat.

Anyone here have the real timeline?
