Henke is correct the name is Romani; an eBay seller named elmermaple from Pittsburgh sold one earlier this fall that was in fantastic condition that was quite a bit too rich for my blood.

Actually there is a Romana brand - I have an orange one and I used it as a commuter for about a year until I upgraded to a 60's Frejus.

It's a 70's department store/bike boom brand. The one I had has barilla center pull brakes and a huret set-up. It's basically a $100 bike on a good day. It not anywhere close to a Romani.

It suited it's purpose. Not high end but made for a good commuter/rain bike.

I had one when I was a kid. It was a 10 speed with Campagnolo parts. It was a beautiful bike and I wish I had it now.
