   Brambilla was a well known Milanese frame builder dating from the 1920s. It is said that Sante Pogliaghi continued the brand of his aunt & uncle Brambilla that had a similar logo. Also frames attributed to Pogliaghi with the serial number range 6000/7000 were in fact Brambilla bikes and the higher numbers begin Sante production in the same location and shop.
