I have a Super Record from

I have a Super Record from about that same time that I use as a fixed commuter. Not much difference between these bikes without the components. It's a great ride. I hope you get as much out of this as I do out of mine. Oh, and stuck with steel bars. You will regret switching to AL if you do.

does yours look anything like this?
