I think you're correct Barry. Surname is Berigliano or something like that. I'm sure I'll have it somewhere. Ceeway Marketing is the current company that developed from Saba. They still sell the same Long Chen lugs, Columbus tubing etc.


That's right, Italo Berigliano was the driving force but he sadly died, Norman Evans did sales and went on to start Ceeway Marketing. Chris Greener was the accountant.

They imported lots of exotic Italian stuff. I used to buy investment cast lugs and Columbus tubing off them. I particularly remember having a very funky pair of blue and red Columbus branded cycling shoes at a time when all cycling shoes were black.

I'm sure a lot of SABA frames were imports from Italy and these had Italian threaded bottom brackets.

The SABA frames I saw were late 70's and had SABA on the seat stays / seat cluster and also little SABA logo's on the lugs (the little man with hands up LOL)

Ridden by Ian Hallam of KP Crisps- SABA fame :)

Nice frames, seemed to be imported and a tad lighter than regular 531..

I'll bet you bought them through my friend when you were in Huddersfield. Your name is in his little black (blue actually) book. I have a lot of his Columbus, Long Chen etc. brochures.

Not sure, he had a shop in Wakefield then so probably not.
