Hey Tom ,
Are you just trying to stir things up again ?
: ^ )
See thread from a couple of days ago about the Dakar Noir bicycle .
One of my postings had the link to the Sheldon Brown page write-up of the Vent Noir ( he wasn't actually the author of those few paragraphs ) .
Gosh yes those are beautiful frame sets !!
Say , it wouldn't happen to be about 24-inches = 61-cm , center-to-top , would it ?
I just dug a lovely little bike out of 25 years of basement storage to save
it being converted to a "Comfort Bike". It is a late '70s Austro-Daimler
Vent Noir II in what the original owner told me is a "smoked chrome" finish.
Gorgeous lugs. I know very little about German bikes and would appreciate
any input folks might give on or off list.
