I recall my father-in-law making a big deal about a 
new bike he was buying maybe 5 years ago or so. A nice
European racing bike, an "Itco." It's very light and
seems to be high quality. Recently the doctor told him
no more bike riding. So two weeks ago we were visiting
in Monterey (California) and he up and gives the bike
to my son. In an attempt to put a dollar value on the
bike I've googled in vain. I tried "itco bycicle" and
"itco velo" and "itco Fahrrad" but have found nothing
even close to this bycicle. Anybody heard of Itco?
of it shows in this photo*

I'm just wondering if the Boy got a way cool present.
