I think the original black Turbo didn't have Bernard Hinault on it, just Turbo on the rear and side of the nose. I bought my first one in 1982 without Bernard Hinault. I also have a Turbo with small world championship stripes, but otherwise, like the original. I also have a Special Turbo, and a Professional Team model that commemorates Miquel Indurain's five Tour de France wins. It is black with yellow fabric on the lower rear corners and embroidery on top about the tour wins. I've owned Turbos in brown, suede, yellow, white, black, and blue. I suspect they came in other colors too. I rode one for over 20,000 miles in the 80s. Lou Deeter, Orlando FL USA
