Yes there are and I have one, Veneto (?). It differs in what is Panto'd. If it were not for the original paint and the panto on the FD mount and BB, I would not know what it is. Here it is stripped but built. One of the indicators is bottle mounts that are flush with the frame on the down tube only.
