My 8 year old wanted to restore an old bike and we found one but would like to get info on it. It's a Maino (made in Italy) 20" bike with a 5 speed stick shift, with rams horn handle bars. Has anyone ever heard of one.

Any pics?
To err is human. To moo is bovine.

Who is this General Failure anyway, and why is he reading my drive?

Pictures would certainly help with the ID. I suspect it was a bike to jump on the chopper craze of the period, following in the footsteps of the Schwinns.

Webshots is bailing out, if you find any of my posts with corrupt picture files and want to see them corrected please let me know. :(

Maino is an Italian brand, as far as I know. I have run across two Maino bicycles, one of which still hangs in The Old Shed.

Other than that, I can be of little help. Good luck with your information quest.
