Marcus and All,

Many of Bianchi's 'Super Set 2' frames were Dedacciai cro-mo and made in Italy. They did also offer the 'Super Set 2' in Tange (Infinity?) as well as 'Dedalo' DB cro-mo which may have been seamed tubing? The higher end bikes during the 'Super Set 2' era were all made in Italy I believe.
