1975 Pogliaghi Strada 59.5cm

Wonder where this one will end up. From http://www.classicrendezvous.com/Italy/Pogliaghi/Pogliaghi_main.htm:

“Sante Pogliaghi was one of the acknowledged masters of post war Italian frame builders. He was sought after by top Olympic and Professionals alike. While his track bikes, both solo and track are most famous, he also made superb road bikes. Sante passed away << edited: (in the year) 2000. The rights to manufacture frames under his name had been acquired by Marc Rossin around 1982, then in the later 1980s, the Basso brothers. >> Bikes from the 1970s and earlier, made by Sante himself, are highly prized by knowledgeable collectors.”
