Nervex Pro lug question....

I own a PX-10, Raleigh International and Motobecane Grand Record. All three bikes have Nervex Pro lugs based on the sales brochures or frame sticker on the down tube. List member Brian Blum was visiting me a few weeks back and pointed out that the lugs on the Grand Record were similarly styled to the Peugeot and Raleigh but were different when closely examined. I have the original brochure for that bike and it clearly states "Nervex Pro lugs." Are there different models of this Pro series lug? Did Motobecane use something other then what was in the brochure (specifications subject to change...), if so, what brand/model might these be? Major difference is that the front "whale tail" is not on the Motobecane lugs and the side profile is slightly different.

Thanks,

Eric Elman
