I just bought a Kalkhoff Professional 12 S, a very nice classic German lightweight. I'm curious how it looked originally. I guess it's from the end of the 70s. The frame is a Reynolds 531 SL equipped with a Suntour Superbe gruppo. It's in good condition, but some parts seem to be not the original like a cheap saddle and seat post. I would really appreciate if any of you could help me out with a catalog scan.

someone correct me if wrong.
SL did not exist untill early 80,s
looking at your pictures you have early 80's bike based off of the cable guides.
if the cranks are campagnolo they are early 70's arms with late chainwheels???
there is a kalkhoff on ebay.de just now!

Thanks for the quick reply! The frame looks very similar. Cranks are part of the Superbe group (also bottom bracket, derailers, brakes, shift levers, brake lavers, and rear hub, pity the front wheel is a newer 105)
Edit: By the way, thanks for the ebay.de link, just found a shiny super record version: http://www.ebay.de/itm/Kalkhoff-Professional-11-S-Dura-Ace-EX-Rennrad-Classic-Bike-/110856931113?pt=Sport_Radsport_Fahrr%C3%A4der&hash=item19cf968729#ht_28346wt_1396
