vainqueur is the french word for winner/champion

the head transfer appears to read "MADE IN W. GERMANY"

cycle exhibits some typical German details such as the ESGE plate stye seat stay and chain stay bridges, crimping of stay ends at the dropouts and Union model U40 pedals

date appears to be within the 1974-77 time

it looks to be a one up from the base sort of model
