Hmmm, who made this bike?

Hi
I bought this bike back in the mid 1990's. At the time it was painted in a pink flesh tone color. I couldn't handle it so had it repainted yellow. Seems silly but that is all history now. I am fairly certain that it is of Italian make but can't remember the name. This photo shows a logo placed at the top of the front forks. I'm hoping that someone will recognize it and know the make. In any case I plan on selling it but think it would help knowing what the heck it is.

that is what happens when you paint bikes. it could have been something rare and valuable but not anymore. any other pics?

Point taken and I agree. It made sense at the time but not so much anymore. I will snap a few other photos tomorrow and post them. I appreciate your feedback.

Cheers

I wonder if you can make reproductions of the old decals to put on the new paint job?

the OP should try and contact Cramerotti and see if they have decals.

normally I would agree, but it was PINK! c'mon, that was a modification that can be justified
