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.
