Columbus: The Soul of Cycling Since 1919

Old Columbus banner featuring, I believe, Antonio Colombo, President of Gruppo S.p.A. (Columbus and Cinelli).

Mr. Colombo also owns a contemporary art gallery in Milan, read more here.

I have collected many photos of the decals of various steels that Columbus has produced for framebuilding, and steel specifications and descriptions, here. Do send me good photos of decals which you don't see.

Thanks to Dave for the photo.
