Anyone from Toronto with old Bloor Cycle catalogs?

EDIT: moved here:

I'm looking for information on my Santini road bike. Santini is the house brand of the old Bloor Cycle in Toronto (they used to be a Toronto landmark, but have since closed shop). "Ultegra" is the model, with Tange Infinity.

It is Toronto folklore that these frames were manufactured by Miele (this seems to be the opinion of some local mechanics and frame builders).

In any case, I'd be curious there is someone who could locate this bike in a Bloor Cycle catalog, and perhaps post the catalog page. Anyone?

Whoops, I meant to post this in the regular Classic and Vintage forum. Is there any way to move it?

Bloor introduced their Santini brand in 1986. Given that Bloor was a large Miele dealer and close to the factory, the connection seems obvious, though I can't corroborate it as fact. However, the serial number may provide a clue to the origin.

The 1988 Santini Ultegra used an Ishiwata 022 frame, so I can only say that youre Inifinity version should be 1989-1991.
