Jim, I forwarded your photo to Mike Edgerton - he told me that he owned every model year of the Le Champion, but he did not mention the Team Champion.
Jerry - My '74 (or '73?) Grand Record has half chrome forks and painted stays. I believe it's original paint since it's so "seasoned". The fellow who sold me the frame said he bought the bike new in 1974 in California, and has been the sole owner and never had it painted. Hmmmm - I wonder if our French friends did things differently on individual frames?
