hi garth proud to be an american perhaps? this isn't called the land of the free and the home of the brave for nothing, i am not talking politics mind you and certainly not war.a little more about spirit.i wish we could all remember it. so i would "ride on"with your nice italian made benotto frame in warm miami and enjoy the best of both worlds.is it that great pale coppery beige that's typical?...kevin ruberg howell nj. usa ps.... if anyone knows the real reason i would expect it would be a lbs or the former owner,or an italian-american or something along those lines.maybe an american olympian who wanted a benotto more than a cannondale..now that's getting close to politics..take care

I just purchased an 80's Benotto frame in nice condition. It has Columbus tubing, Benotto rear dropouts, braze on front derailleur hanger and shift levers, and a chrome fork with delicate looking fully sloping fork crown (Benotto engraved too). There is a small American flag decal that looks original on the back of the seat post at the top. What in the world is this supposed to signify? Made in the US? Champion of the US roads? HUh? All the other decals look very Benotto standard issue.
