It seems that this is the same model as T.A. bag. A difference does not only have the brand name "T.A.". Did La Fuma manufacture the bags of T.A.? http://ebay.com/<blah>

These are the photocopies of the book "CYCLES de competition et randonneuses" by Daniel Rebour 1976. http://www12.xdsl.ne.jp/~fuseken/ta_bag.gif http://www12.xdsl.ne.jp/~fuseken/ta_panniers.gif
