I remember seeing a number of these around North Carolina in the early to mid 1970's. They all seemed to be the same spec; sew-ups, steel Campy Gran Sport cranks, NR derailleurs and I think Balilla brakes. As I remember there was no tubing sticker on the frames. I was never sure if Mirella was a real company or just a name made up by the importer. I have one thats been hanging in my storage building for over 20 years with a seized stem.
