I have a ALAN Super Record road bike that is labelled as a Rivera. Probably a shop house brand. Never seen another bike with the same name though. It is a ~'79 judging from the componentry on it.

Awesome topic - especially since I have a Pagani-labelled Alan.  So far we've listed: Pagani Fanini Rolf Wolfshohl ROWONA Gitane Torpado Magniflex Geurciotti Ciscato

Some more seaching last night revealed: Zeus (Wooljersey dot com) Basso (Velospace dot org) Faglum Brothers (?) (Velospace) Gregorad (Velospace)

Any more? Dave Whitney Poland, Maine USA

If you look at photos of the Giro and perhaps other grand tours in the mid  1970s, you can see a lot of teams riding ALAN frames branded by their sponsor,  perhaps more so for mountain stages.  Torpado Magniflex had them as well as  Guerciotti road and cyclocross bikes, of course.  I had one come through  here labeled Ciscato, which I had never heard of, nor seen since.  There surely are others, but I don't know them off-hand.
