Owner Ned sends this photo of his Casati "Settantenario" (70th anniversary) MAX bike, serial number 25.

Although the bike is labled is MAX the only typical MAX tube is the seattube; the top tube is round, and the down tube is round at the headtube. Neither the chainstays or fork (also labeled MAX) look like MAX. Perhaps this is a mix of tubesets, or Casati did some in-house tube manipulation? Any information welcome.
