Basso Loto and Basso Concept tubing(1 post)

Basso Loto and Basso Concept tubingFrank
Jun 16, 2002 5:37 AM
I just bought a new old stock Basso Loto and it is beautiful...pearl red, no chrome, and looks to be really nicely done.

I am trying to find out more about this bike. The bike is a 1993 model year (serial # starts w/93 and seller thought was '93 model) and the seat tube tubing decal reads "Basso Concept Tubing Super Light 25 cr mo 4 SX". I know the earlier model year Loto's were built of Columbus SLX tubing, but I have no idea what this tubing set is.

Can anyone tell me anything about the Basso Concept tubing (what brand is it, who made it, what would it compare to) or this model of the Loto itself?
