Picked this up several years ago because of the chrome lugs. Paid too much for it but it is what it is and now it is my oldest from 1972. The PO removed the original ST and DT decals. I have replacements.

Bikes don't stand alone. They are two tired.

Thanks for the kind words, off topic but the bike seat tube angle, at 72 degrees is the big difference I have finally stumbled upon. I am convinced all the set back seat posts, and theories, about fit have there limitations. Very long inseam needs to look elsewhere. Vintage is love!!!
