    It's probably a '71, then, minus one to two years.

    The one thing I am sure of is that proper sew-up tires ride better, assuming casings are similar in size. The Conti Sprint Gatorskins on two of my bikes...

    Sno-Seal is what I've been using.

    It's consistent, penetrates quickly and thoroughly, is readily available, inexpensive and (since made from bee's wax) allows the saddle to breathe somewhat.
