aha! you want them to compare with your existing example:

Need ID help ...road bike

juvela "looking forward to more fragola fun!"

btw - Andy is not a Newland person. his vision is greater; he is a Newlands person.

[just letting you know to help any searches to go better]

I have always associated DiNucci with the early 70's Strawberries.

I recently picked up a Strawberry frame from mid70s from the original owner. 54cm, and was described as a time trialling and hill climbing frame, and very evidently has super tight clearances: It will barely squeeze in a 25cm tire. Amazing workmanship in the lug joints, which are filed to paper thin. The most notable features are the custom rear dropouts, custom made of plate steel. There are no decals but I was told it was 531, and the original color was said to be "Dalmation Blue", which was similar to Gios blue. Finally it is really light: about 5.3 lbs for f/f.

Andy Newlands at Strawberry very kindly emailed me back to confirm the Serial # and to say "The frame was built in 1974 and I did the machine work and Mark DiNucci brazed it up." Both Newlands and DiNucci are recognized among the greats of US framebuilding.

The frame is in ok cosmetic shape. It was raced extensively, repainted several times, and had cable stops brazed on during its life. It is in need of a restoration. More re to come as restoration begins.

I don't know about the 70's, but I saw the new Kardashian line of strawberries posted on FB today.
