Why do all the good bikes get posted after I go to bed. Formula 1 tubing was only used,at least according to the US catalogs, in '86 on the Vittoria and Trofeo frames. However they do not have this much chrome, none at all in fact, so I wonder if this were part of some sort of 'grass roots' sponsorship. I know a shop I worked in had a beautiful Turquoise Vittoria with a chrome fork.

The '86 Mondiale and Giro, so SuperLeggera that year, both used SL tubing and only had a chrome stay.
