What do we know about Simo bicycles?

Know a bit about Gian Simonetti and the Masi connection. Was he a builder for Medici or did Mike Howard aka the "hair bandit" build all the frames and later the Simonetti/Simo ones too?
Thanks in advance. Just bought htis one for $350. Full Campy with Tange Prestige too.

While I could answer this, I won't due to the way you framed your question.

You probably won't like the way I've framed this one either.

What's your problem?

When Mr. Howard became unavailable, the production stopped.
