Thank you very much for posting.

Your example same finish as one mentioned above in post Nr. 4. CL offering from second half of last year.

One story I got on these was that a young American man worked for a time at the Saavedra facility in B.A. and when he returned home to the U.S. he brought back ten examples of this model with him which he sold individually.

My example was purchased from him by a law student at the Boalt School at Law at the University of California, Berkeley. Many of the fittings had been replaced. When I asked about them the owner said "I needed a bike with parts that worked."
