CR Members:

I have recently acquired a 1980 Motobecane Grand Record, Vitus, lugs with Delta cut outs, 58 cm, full Shimano 600 Group, black Brooks B-72 saddle (odd), original booklets, etc, with Rigida Tubeless Rims. The bike appears to have been ridden very little. The saddle has no signs of wear and is not even broken in.

Sadly, one of the rims is bent beyond what the guys wrenching at the LBS would consider trying to true up. The rim has a red oval Rigida label on it with "AL 1320, Rigida, 700 c, Made in France" . Do anybody have one of these rims that they could possibly sell me? Also, the Brooks B-72 saddle looks more like it should be on a Raleigh 3 -speed. Does anybody have a Brooks B-17 (black or honey) in decent shape that they would like to trade or sell? Thanks.
