Pogliaghi (well, sort of)
Well, at least itís branded as oneÖ
Posted in SS/FG because I know that many track bike aficionados own Pogs, and hope that they can point me in the right direction. Capitalization and punctuation included for the benefit of those who might be kind enough to help. Cross posted in Classic & Vintage.
What I know:
Rear dropout spacing: ~126mm
Front derailleur braze-on
Columbus SL sticker
ďPĒ headbadge decal
Serial #9142 stamped on BB shell, not seat tube lug like the few other Pogs Iíve seen.
56 CF stamped on the other side of the BB shell, the significance of CF is something Iíd like to find out.
If this were one of the original, sequentially numbered Pogliaghis (and Iím pretty sure that itís not), it would have to have been produced in the late sixties or early seventies. This bike looks nothing like the other Pogs from that era, the decals alone say 80s. The stamps on the seatstays at the seatlug are different from all the other Pogs Iíve seen as well.
Anyhoo, a quick internet search tells me that the brand was sold to Rossin, and later to Basso. My guess is that this frame is one of these, but unfortunately I canít find anything about frames of this vintage on the web.
If anybody has any info on the post-Pog Pogs, itíd be much appreciated!
