cinco clearly didn't actually read the thread at all, or else he's got some very dark sunglasses on.

I also know it's Torpado... How? Well, because I know how to read. But perhaps we should discuss what a joke is as well, since it's apparently lecture time! :foo:

Okay, I can at least reckon that you've got brake levers that are much newer than the frame so they don't tell us much about the model year if you say it's 1970s. You've likely got no braze on brake...
