> It's a commonplace that italian manufacturers were cranking out frames as fast as they could by the mid-1970s..but, I must say, this pogliaghi is rough, even for the time and maker..Pogliaghi of course, famous for nicknames like "pugugly" and you can find examples to justify that name. This one too..notice the head badge..a foil graphic that appears to have been cut with a pair of scissors..badly.
