Hello natgastro, welcome to the forums. Sorry I can't help but that is a cool bike.

I guess it's a Carpa -- frame builder name, perhaps? Anyway, it looks great and the geometry looks just right to me, so I am not surprised you enjoy it so much. Very nice and rare find!

Very cool, with the cromovelato paint job. I'm jealous.

Those translucent-color-over-chrome paint jobs are pretty fragile, so treat it gently as it deserves.
