What Brand/Model is this Bike? Any ideas?

Hey Folks - I wanted to see if anyone recognizes the brand/make of this bike? I got it in Italy and it is obviously a promo bike for RayBan sunglasses. It has rod brakes and other cool features - seems really well built.

(see attached photos)

Does anyone have any ideas as to the manufacturer or model?

Thank you!
Steve

Looks like a modern Indian-made bicycle of some sort.

Here's an example. 26" Lady Curved Bar - Eastman Global

Welcome to Bikeforums, Steve! The pics are a bit small, but my impression is that of an Italian version of a Dutch bike. This example from Cicli Blume looks like a close match. Search for 'bici olandese' and see more.

Thanks non-fixie. I am looking at those photos. I appreciate it. I need to figure out why the pics are so small - my original ones are bigger.

Don't know if it's Italian, but I'm pretty sure it isn't a Dutch made Dutch bike. The Dutch stopped combining rods with rimbrakes in the 1920's, and rightly so. Also no Dutch manufacturer would fit an O-lock like that to a bike, nor any lock in that way.
