Hello Folks,

Stacey Baker from Virginia. Anyone ever heard of a bike called 'Favorite'? I bought it new in the fall of 1973, (another story), it was made in Czechoslovakia, all Campy NR except for brakes and pedals, (another story). The rear derailler is dated '72. The frame, while very nicely done lugwork with wrap around seat stays, is unknown as far as the tubing is concerned. No name on the dropouts. About twelve years ago, in reply to my inquiry, no less a personage than Fred DeLong at Bicycling also said he had no idea as to the tubing, but he suspected Columbus. If anyone has seen a bike similar to this one, or has any info, would love to hear it. I still ride it, in the late eighties did some racing, and still stubbornly stick to my Brooks Pro saddle (small rivets)!! Thanks for your help.
