GIOS Flickr Group, "Tante vittorie, un solo colore: Blu Gios!"

Guido van den Anker writes in from the Netherlands to tell us about his Dutch language website, www.italiaanseracefietsen.wordpress.com/.

There are two particularly interesting sections to the site which is easy to navigate:

1. A GIOS Flickr photo pool which he has been started at www.flickr.com/groups/giosbicycles/. There are currently 151 GIOS photographs including photos of these bikes:
•Gios Super Record 1978 reissue from 2003
•Gios Super Record 1979
•Gios Super Record 1979 model III
•Gios Super Record 1979 van Didi Thurau
•Gios Super Record 1980 van Fons De Wolf
•Gios Super Record 1982
•Gios Pista Super Record 1974
•Gios Professional 1975
•Gios Compact Pro (year unknown)
•Gios Aerodynamic (1982)
•Gios New A-90

Guido invites GIOS owners to send photos in.

The other aspect of Guido's site that is interesting is his list of of more than 170 Italian bicycle manufacturers and their related web links, look under "merkenlijst".

By the way, take a look at this entry in my blog to see how a GIOS Super Record was delivered to customers. Will we ever see anything like this again???
