Reviving this thread with another 1970's Norta ('top racer' model) before re-build. Very nice 'gios' blue, Ishiwata 022 tubing, mostly dura-ace, some parts to be replaced and a lot of cleaning to do (they always look much cleaner in a photo than in the flesh, don't they).
Yes, Norta was (and still is) one of the biggest belgian brands in sales-terms. Though they mainly produced city-bikes and sponsored only one pro-team (1978 Fragel-Norta team), their racing bikes where usually very well made.
BTW OP's bike is an amazing colour!
