That means there are possibly two more out there, one w/your name on it!

On a serious note: I discovered the other day that they made a 5 speed Super Tourer (DL135) in 74' with a TA crank set, only in Bronze / Mink.
No mention of a 5 speed in 75' or 76', so THAT would be a rare one!



Not that I'd give up my double Stronglight chain rings for one.

Yes, very nice. Unfortunately, in my youth I didn't think so, which is why mine now looks like this. Still a great ride though.

Well, if it couldn't stay lagoon blue/white, at least you did pick the next-best color.

That bike looks fun NOW ! What is this model, I love the color. It shares similar components with the Gran Sport.
I hope a thread is coming soon.

I love the color of this bike, with the black head tube. I also didn't know you could get colored pedals. Is that a double or triple chain ring?

Triple: 54 - 40 - 32.

Used to be a double, but I found a bolt kit and a NOS 32T ring for cheap.

Grand Sports

I changed the shifters, wheels, bottom bracket, seatpost, and headset.




Sprite

I changed the handlebars, brake levers, wheels, derailleurs, shifters, bottom bracket, and crankset.




Capri

Single speed conversion. Yes, the stem is ugly, but it was the only one that I had that would work with the 26.0mm handlebar.
