This road bike bears some resemblance to the Mountain King model, though the lug set is rather different. Compare to the bike featured here. This frame features long spear points on the lugs.

It bears the original lime green paint with black and cream panels, and black and gold trim.

Components include: drilled Mafac brakes and levers, Stronglight 49 crank with TA rings, Campag Gran Sport mechs, Record seat pin and hi-flange hubs; Brooks saddle; Cinelli steel stem and GB bar.
