Fah-zheen. Probaby the best value of any Italian mark. Well built and handle very well. They were imported throughout the 80's and sold to shops as frames, and built up from there (not unlike what Velo Orange does). You see Shimano 600 on a lot of them because that seemed to be the best value point on the group deals at the time. I still have an '86 which my son borrowed 3 years ago and has been abusing ever since. They never sold well not only because of the name, but they never heavily marketed them selves or established a formal distribution chain.
