    Suntour Quattro Cyclone 7000 in Italian guise?

    I've got an old Bianchi Cd'I with Quattro Ds. It doesn't say suntour anywhere on them but I do believe they are. Suntour never had a group qalled "Quattro" but the fron D looks exactly like a Cyclone 7000 of the same vintage. Can anyone verify this?
    I'm upgrading to 105 and no longer have a use for these and I want sell them but I have to know that I can put cyclone 7000 in the ad header.

    Unfortunately, SunTour doesn't make this easy, as I don't believe they stamped their part numbers on components. Cyclone 7000 was spec'd on the CdI in 1987 and 1988. Quattro appeared on it in 1989, the year Cyclone was dropped from the SunTour line. It's possible that Bianchi requested a small production run of Cyclone but SunTour was hesitant to use the retired model name. Personally, I've never had the opportunity to study a Quattro. Pics would be appreciated.

    I always believed to be one of the two Cyclone or Sprint just branded with Quattro by Ofmega so Bianchi could offer a $600 all Italian bike.
