From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Italvega is a brand of road bicycles imported and branded by the California-based bicycle distributor, Lawee, Inc., which was responsible also for the bicycle brands Univega and Bertoni. The handbuilt Italvega bikes were designed and manufactured within the noted Torresini workshop at the Torpado factory in Padua, Italy. They were built beginning in 1970 and continuing through the mid- to late-70's before the operation was moved to Japan under the name Univega.
Models manufactured under the Italvega marque include (in order of increasing quality):
The top-end models were built with double-butted Columbus tubing and Campagnolo Record and Nuovo Record components.
