This is what's left of a sticker on a Cambio Corsa equipped Gitan (not Gitane).
Does anybody out there know what it is or better yet, what it looks like complete?

Thanks

Don't recognize the sticker and can't make out the brand, but it says "Cremona" below, so I suspect that it's some company that was based in Cremona, IT.

That should give you a place to start your research.

Maybe a Stradivarius?
