Hey Lou and Jerome, I still ride my 3 G.R.s (73-76??) and all ride differently. One of the earlier ones that had more fork rake had on the 531 stickers in French that frame was 531db and forks and stays were 531. The later one, with less rake, says 531 db tubes and 531 sticker on forks, and stays are not mentioned. My Le Champion,72-73 with lots of rake and eyelets,said that tubes were 531db and forks and stays were 531. One silver and two black,and the silver appears to be the oldest, because of lots of rake. All 3 G.R.s had TA 3 pin cranks. All had the same fancy lugs and fork crowns that were outlined. I've never wanted anything else as my main ride, even though I've owned over 20 steel lugs. What have I got? Who knows, as far as year or tubes? All I know is
they sure suit me.
