I’m a Frank Berto guy and the Vx Luxe GT is the winner. I keep a drawer full of these in preparation of the Zombie apocalypse. OK kidding on the zombies but not on the drawer full.

When the Suntour patent ran out, everyone copied it. Kind of tells you how good the design was.

Had you bought that bike new in 1967, it would not have been surprising if in 1973 you would have considered upgrading the RD, and the V GT Luxe would have been a fine choice, and not very expensive either.
