"playing card" 'nago... in "Eddy" color, what more can one ask for?
Well, Les' Lucy Electric Blue with full pantographing and the Playing Card graphics.
Bike lust circa 1973.

It's by first attempt at such things, and it was pretty fun and low stress, since it was on a used and already modified ring. I think this bikes done at this point.

And I love the ride. Can't really feel a difference from my '76 Super, which I think differ more in tires than in anything else.

Ring drillium before:
Like it and your thinking. Did just the same- to experience when DIY drillium was the 'fad'.

The Super model is a classic because of the storyline(s) in its history, a well balanced all around racer for its time. Surely many writings are out there with such negs as being over rated, low quality etc., though I rather call them flattery in jealous terms.

Tire, wheelset, bar and stem to riders taste and they bring a smile every time.
