An eBay find in rough but original condition. Frame needed a complete restoration, but original comp set cleaned up nicely and surprisingly, showed little to no wear. Had frame powdercoated in RAL9017, hand-painted the lug details, and obtained a replacement decal set from Greg Softley in Australia, who sells through his eBay storefront "cyclomondo".

Extras include Gilles Berthoud saddle bag, Crane "Karen" brass bell on Velo-Orange stem mount, Velo-Orange 37mm smooth polished fenders, and Ale toe clips with Velo-Orange straps.
