[Whoops, sent this just to Jerry instead of to the list]

Come to think of it, you're right, the silver w/black head tube was the Grand Jubilee. I was thinking Grand Record because this fork has Campy dropouts, and I thought the GJs of that era had Huret dropouts. Anyone remember? Were there GRs in silver or GJs w/Campy dropouts?
