List, I have a Liotto, bought as a Frame/Fork from Tunisia on Ebay in the summer of 2009. Can't find a whole lot about it either, beyond the Vicenza and Campagnolo connection. There was a tale floating around one of the forums that Gino Liotto often hired Campagnolo employees to moonlight in his shop. Mine has the long drop-outs (no eyes!) in the rear, which would place it as early 70's. The Liotto logos are hand-painted with two colors, with a real nicely patina'd silver paint job. It was missing the headbadge so I had a simple one made up locally. I outfitted it with Super Record components, all with different dates. It's a rider, so the hodgepodge of dates doesn't offend me... Beyond that, it fits me well and rides great.
