Subject: [CR]Pogliaghis and big feet

I'm searching for help on two fronts. First, I have an NOS Pogliaghi frame, apparently built around 1990, though I cannot really verify the date. The head tube bears decals stating "Pogliaghi Italcorse -- Hand made -- Milano, Italy." The serial number is stamped on the front bottom of the head tube (#13127). If anyone has any information about these frames, e.g., when Rossin acquired them, where the "Italcorse" fell in the line, and whether I can be sure this is a real Pogliahi, that would be great.

It is a beautiful blue frame, chrome fork and half chromed rear triangle.

Second (and pardon me if I missed this thread before), anyone know where I can get some nice old style cleated shoes in, shall we say, "plus" sizes? I wear at least a 49, maybe a 50. The good folks at Vintage Velos sold me a very nice pair of 48's (Allessandros), but they are just too small for my 13EE.s.

Thanks a bunch.
