yes, the astore was the cheaper version of the squadra using columbus aelle tubing and not the SLX. we sold a few of them back in the 80s -around 1986 i think. i doubt if the PDM ever used them, aelle being the basic tubing but interesting that you mention it was fitted with c -record so maybe i'm wrong! lovely frame in any case
Yeah, that's what I thought... In fact it says Aelle R
. Is that different from the normal Aelle?
The previous owner said he had some connections with PDM and he always got tubulars from them.
He also had a metallic blue Squadra with full Super Record with lots of Concorde pantographing.
