I have essentially the same bike, but I believe mine is a 1981 (1.Mxxxx S/N) and yours is a 1982 (2.Axxxx). Delightful and fast bike, but a little twitchy in a crosswind.

Since mine is charcoal -- my wife, a professional artist, calls it Ralph Lauren brown -- I cannot show it in this thread.

Not sure where to find the serial number, nothing but 2ĽA on the drive side of the seat lug and 156 on the opposite side of the seat lug. The bike shop i bought it from said it was a "budget-racer." those guys are still around 30+ years later but run a different shop here in town now.

I still have most of the original parts, i think. Original silver Speedy brake levers, plus a NOS set of Speedy brakes with the labeling in a script and the silver levers, ONE Modolo gum hood (the other must be temporarily misplaced . scary thing is i also have a pair of unused AME anatomic gum hoods in pink. PINK! whew. dodged that bullet what was i THINKING
