Wrong. Quattro Assi was never an "Italian brand". Bill Lewis originated the brand and out sourced the frames in the begining to Tommasini, who Bill at the time, was the only US distributor for Tommasini. I have one of the original Tommasini built QA steel frames now in my collection. Later Bill outsource his aluminum frames to an American builder in Caifornia, whose name escapes me now and I have one of those frames as well. Even later, and now currently, Bill has outsourced his current aluminum and carbon, and full carbon frames to Taiwan and yes, I have one of those as well. Quattro Assi, a Texas brand... never Italian and everything to do with the original "vintage" QA bikes. :thumbsup:brewster said:Quattro Assi originated as a small Italian brand. Quality frames but not a big following here in the states. Back the late 80s, they were imported by WM Lewis Imports. I would agree with the previous post, today's label doesn't have much if anything to do with the vintage bikes.
