this is my Telavio made by Pino Morroni in Rome 1980 circa.
the frame is made of columbus sl tubes all machined inside and with 6 internal brazed rods in order to improve stiffness.
this frame has a particular geometry,the wheel base is of 96,5 cm.[/img]http://www.classicrendezvous.com/USA/Pino_Moroni_main.htm

Very very cool frame from a legendary builder.

I had a set of Pino ti qr (precursors to American Classic's) for a short period. Having those prompted me to research and learn as much as I could on Pino.

Just a little more info I found:

Now on to the Telavio: yes, Pino built these frames and they do indeed date to the mid-1980′s for the most part. The holes you are talking are indeed intended as frame stiffeners, as there are small internal tubes, or a channel, going entirely through the tube. These were placed at areas that Pino felt were susceptible to flex. These frames are indeed a bit of a rare item. There are a few scattered around here in Michigan (maybe 4-5). Pino did return to Italy for a time in the late 1980′s and he did build some Telavio steel frames there, but I sincerely doubt if any of these have found their way back “across the pond”. In fact, during this time period, Pino was employed by the Italian Cycling Federation, so these frames may very well still be in the federation’s hands. Also of note, a lot of the Telavio frames were finished in yellow.

this is the second Pino's frame made in Rome with Rotor lugs.
the yellow one is made with Cinelli lugs.
