Anyone out there know the history of the bike brand Cignal? American company? Foreign? How long were they in existance? I just picked up a Cignal "Sportbike" at a garage sale over the weekend for $20. Shimano components tell me it was built in 1991. It's a 12 speed hybrid style bike. 27x1 1/4" steel wheels, upright handlebars, lugged steel frame with Shimano shifting components. It also has a saddle with Cignal brand on the side. I worked on it on over the past two days and have it running very nicely. It would make a nice around town type bike for someone not concerned with having a better known brand. I tried to find info on line on the Cignal brand, but found very little. Bikepedia had data on this brand and the various models they sold from around 1993 to 2000?, but that's about all I could find. Nothing about who they were etc. Any help would be appreciated.
