I am new to this process, but I am curious about this bike and the uses of forums, so I will kill two birds with one stone.
I just purchased a Stella road bike with some nice parts on it. Stronglight al. cranks, simplex deraillers, Normandy hubs with Mavic rims and double butted spokes. The sticker just below the top tube on the seat tube say "DURIFORTE" I don't find a serial # in any of the standard locations. The frame is orange with matching fork, chrome two tone. the stem and handlebars are aluminum and the brakes are weinman center pull
Please let me know any history, aprox value, ride characteristics etc.
We ride bikes because they are fun and the ultimate form of transportation in this crowded world
