Trak Bike? HELP ID

Found this Trak bike and looking for more info on it. It has a Made in Belgium Sticker and a second sticker with Bonderized & R.C. on it. Will be back to pick it up next week so I will clean and get better pictures.

Bonderized seems to have something to do with galvanizing.

There is an Australian bikeseller called Trak, perhaps they were rebranding these back in the day?

Chunky fork crown and what appear to be the possible existence of turkey levers and "Bonderized" make me think gaspipe, but you never know. Better pics might help.

Did you ever get this bike? I had one of these back in the 70s.
