What I really don't want is for some mope to buy one of these bikes in order to remove the rear 36-spoke Fictel & Sachs Torpedo & throw the rest of the bike away.
Stranger things have happened...
I'm almost sure thats whats going to happen .....if it had a 28 spoke rear wheel[ISO406] like mine it might not
I have a common white one with the duomatic that I acquired years ago the chap that I got it from didn't even know it had a duomatic until I explained [after i paid money for it] and he was amazed and always wondered why sometimes it was easy to pedal and sometimes its not[going uphill on the same hill]
when I walked away with the bike he had this regret look in his face ....I drove off in a hurry lol
I know which bike models have the f&s duo installed so i'm constantly searching local CL and ebay auto search and have about a half dozen duomatics in my stable I sold all the automatic hubs i have i just can't get used to them for some reason
btw i've never seen one in such pristine condition that should be a keeper
