I am an older fellow living in Mesa, Arizona. My bike stable includes a pristine 1962 Atala Record with original Campy Record Gruppo (don't ride that one) and a 1986 Atala Record "team replica" frame with a mix of Mavic and Super Record. I also have a 1983 Trek 970 (road bike), a 1994 Tomasso, a 1974 Motobecane Grand Record, and a late 60s Sutter.
Current project is the restoration of the Motobecane. I have all of the original Record parts, and I have a Stronglight Model 93 crankset to replace the original TA cranks. I also have a pair of Record High Flange hubs to replace the original Normandy hubs.
I think the older French frames are a joy to ride.
