Oh.....don't get me going on that subject......'its got Italian geometry' if 73 degree in Italian is not the same as English.........or French........or Spanish!

The only thing that can be said about 'English geometry' from the 70s is perhaps we went a little too far with making the frames very short wheelbased, which is funny because I am just responding to a couple of messages offlist , including Dale, regarding how tight my Woodrup looks!
