Very early foil type “sticker” (Sorry, not a great scan!)

The next version that was typical into the late 1960s and very early 1970s…

This decal was prevalent in the 1980s..

The replacement decal for repainted frames..

The next big change.. “rifled” main tubes similar to the reinforcement in the famous Columbus fork steerers…

The “Multi-Shape” tube set in which every frame tube was of a different shape!

The now discontinued Stainless Steel “METAX”

Chart of tubing models & weights,

circa mid 1980s

Hardly “Classic,” but bizarrely interesting! The radical new Aluminum bottom bracket shell.
