Vintage Italian Romana Info

Ok, like many on this board I am a complete sucker for any esoteric bike especially if it's Italian. Found an old 1960 to 1970 Romana that is beat up fairly well but still intact. 58cm frame is true with very minor surface rust, but orange paint is a wreck. Gian Robert derailleurs, Balilla brakes, and Romana crankset. Probably better to part it out and keep the frame for a future project but don't really think the bike was ever anything special so that might be a waste. Can't find anything on Google so any info mucho appreciated.

Orange Romana - Yeah they do exist

Just got the same bike in orange (mid to late 1970's made by EBM - from what I've been told), and am picking it up this weekend. I asked a similiar question. Feedback was that yes - it's nothing special - probably just a bike boom deal. I'd be interested in knowing if you found out more about yours...Mine will likley be a beater bike. I did the same thing - but did not find anything on the web.

I'm looking for any photos of this early 70's Italian bike. Mine was white. Thanks.
