BTW two of the three US market Protos I've seen did not have a Proto decal, but that is common on Reparto Course frames of the time. The third is an obvious repaint.

AFAIK all US Proto frames were painted in the states and I believe you could pic some colors. Mine sports Celeste with a decal similar to an '89 Advantage. I may have been one of the first in the country to get one.
Hey Bianchigirll, where ya been hiding out lately??? Haven't seen you post here in a few months, and was "worried" about you! glad to see you back on the forum.
