Thank you for this. I guess the Aelle bike I picked up in ADR colors was actually off the shelf like that, built with radius and campagnolo cranks, despite the campagnolo FD.

Yeah, yours looks a lot like the Aelle/Tretubi - Campagnolo Special in ADR livery.

Except it has a suntour radius RD and shifters and a painted fork. When I cleaned the frame, I saw there was a coat of red paint over the chrome, but under the ADR paint on the fork. Go figure.

I didn't notice that but there is a Suntour Radius Special model listed on the last page with Campy Triumph cranks and Suntour Radius derailluers. My 1974 Bottecchia Special had some kind of primer or something. Under the blue enamel was a coat of yellow paint and then the chrome. No telling how they did the paint back then.

In any event, here is the 1989 catalog:

I love how they give you all the details of the '89 TT finish without mentioning the rider's name. Were there trademark issues with Lemond? He was marketing bikes under his name at the time.
