Suspect there must have been a distributor for them in the state as observed a few others "in the field" locally.

For some reason nearly every example seen was yellow.

(Sutter an actual manufacturer)

The company had a pro bike done for them by Olmo in the early 1970's - shown at CR.

You/re welcome. Thanks for posting pics of one of their higher level bikes.
Do you know if the Olmo-made Sutter was a steel frame? It's a beautiful bike.
I ask because the advertisement indicated Sutter offered limited edition professional level bikes with titanium frames.
Until now, my ti list for the early 70s began and ended with Teledyne, but I'm still learning.
