Hi Costello,
I have a couple of Italvegas (1971 & 1972) and have been collecting Italvega serial numbers. Is your Italvega s/n 3619 or a different s/n? Thanks.

The headbadge looks a like the Italvega badge. The Italvegas were made until about 1978 and then became Univegas. I'd guess your's is a 1978-79.

Dust caps
