You are right T-Mar, it is a Super Corsa. At the risk of crucifiction, I pulled most of the exceedingly ugly chrome/light blue stickers off the bike, leaving the ones with gold script. I am already regretting it, but I'm going to ride it unitl it dies (it is my favorite bike). The what-ever-the-hell-we feel-like-doing-today nature of french compentry has made it difficult to date. It has the older high-flange Campy hubs (round holes) and Grand Sport derailuer w/ round pulleys (no chain divits, and not the 'Nouvo' one). The frame has the campy dropouts and non-nervex lugs, but the fork is off a TdF with chromed Nervex crown (yes, it is the orginal fork). I'm thinking mid-'60's, but it is a guess at best. All of the on-line info I have found so far has not helped much.
