Zullini, a Dutch-Italian connection. The Dutch firm (in Voorburg) van Herwerden had frames made at Zullo (his wife is from the Netherlands) and Chesini under the name Zullini. In the original catalogs of van Herwerden from the '70ies and the '80ies you can admire a lot of what we now call vintage 'stuff'. Among others the Super Strada.

Sending some photo's of the bike to Daniele in Verona, the reply was:"Sono entrambe molto belle!!! La Sua Chesini é originale dato che ha le pantographie sui pendenti e anche vicino la scatola del movimento centrale. Sembra anche avere il supporto per la tabella portanumero sul tubo orrizontale vicino al tubo sterzo" By sandblasting the frame and fork the serial number became visible from under a coat of paint.
