Regarding a question from LionelOgauge about the Tour de France decals. I purchased two of these bikes in about '72 or '73 from Big Wheel in Denver. They both had the "Service Course" decal as I recall. At $190 each they were a bargain. I rode them in races and on tours for several years with no complaints or problems. Of course, they didn't have the status of Masi or Colnago but they got me there just as quickly.

Wish I still had one of them Paul Patzkowsky in Colorado
