    It looks like one of the lugs on the seat post broke. Why not just weld it back on? A good aluminum welder can make it like new.

    If it were on an aircraft tubing, it would be stop drilled. I'd use a smaller drill than 1/8 ". Then fill with putty (or braze), sand and paint.

    Has anyone heard, lately, from Michael Swantak. I got some excellent decals from him a year ago but now am unable to contact him. Anybody know?

    The headbadge looks a like the Italvega badge. The Italvegas were made until about 1978 and then became Univegas. I'd guess your's is a 1978-79.

    Dust caps

    Hi Tellyho,
    If you find a source of pedal dust caps I'd like to know too. I need a dust cap for a 1975 Lyotard pedal.
