May, 1985?

Does it look like this? They were available in Scarlet or Gunmetal.

1985 Specs pg 1

1985 Specs pg 2

YES! thank is it. I just found a thread that states, "LeTour (and Super LaTour) numbers (1978-80 and 1982 on) include the letter "s" with a production month letter followed by a series of numbers, the first one telling the year of production (8 = 1978, 0 = 1980). Example: SC94653 = March, 1979. "

So that makes sense.

Typical of a tall rider on a frame that's too small.
