I would of thought that GRs were still 531 in '78. If you're looking at a catalog though I can't dispute that. Btw is that the catalog with a night pic of the Eiffel Tower seen through a bike wheel? I had that catalog as a kid and have been looking for a new one since....

I'd move the bike back to around '76 or a bit older. Around '76-'77 I'm pretty sure Moto was using top-tube braze-ons for the rear brake cable. Not the most help but maybe a start.

Your bike is a beauty btw. I'm envious. A GR or at least a Gran Jubilee was the object of my lust when all I could afford was a Nomade. I recently picked up a '78 GJ but the GR is still out there, calling me..
