- The Bike – 1978 Confente Pro Strada, serial #03.
- The Story – Peter Gilbert turned me on to this one. Acquired from American cycling legend Jock Boyer. I went to his shop on the Monterey Peninsular to pick up the bike and saw all the other cool bikes he had including a number of other Confentes and bikes that Mario built for him. Notice the word ‘Strada’ missing on both sides of the chain-stay.
