Concorde......I think

Hi, I'm a nube here & my knowledge of road bikes is very limited so bare with me.I picked up a very used & abused Concorde for dirt cheap this week.At least I think it's a Concorde.The vinyl lettering & badges are all there,but are severely mangled.(on order) The paint is in very rough shape & needs to be resprayed.This bike has Shimano gear sets & Miche wheels.
It has "A-PRO" stamped on the rear fork just below the seat stem.(see attachment)
Can anyone tell me what I might have here?Is it a Concorde?

A-Pro is a Taiwanese based bicycle manufacture. I can't imagine having prominent A-Pro embossing on the frame, even if they were contract manufacturing Concordes.

OP, it would be helpful to get more photos of the bike...drive side and details for a better evaluation.

Bikes: No-name LH drive track. Also ride an Exxon Graftek, a Masi, a Trek R200 or a RR Boneshaker for fun!

Looks like someone was having fun with stickers bitd.
Even though I'm getting the parts-bin vibe off this, I like the seat cluster.
May we ask its weight and how much you paid? Thanks

If you post the serial number, we may be able to reverse engineer it and at least tell you the manufacture date.

I would expect a Concorde with that much Chrome and decals of that vintage to have the concorde logo engraved on the top of the fork, so would indicate to me that at least the fork isn't an original Concorde fork. If you were to pull the fork, I wonder what it would say? What type of tubing does that sticker on the seat tube say it is? I wouldn't have thought Concorde was a prestige enough of a brand to get fakes, but I don't know anything.

Yeah I don't know anything either.I'm with you.....why fake a Concorde?But with this A-PRO frame I gotta assume it's a fake.I'll pull the fork & see what's what.Will update later.You get what you pay for I guess.Thanks for the input.
