Subject: [CR]Drakkar Noir Bike

We had a customer come in the shop today with a road bike labeled "Drakkar Noir" (apparently a promotional product offered by the fragrance company). A sticker on the seat tube says "Made by Velo Schauff in W-Germany."

The hubs, derailleurs, shifters, and crank are Shimano, and all except the hubs have kind of a bow and arrow logo engraved and filled in gold. The date codes on the Shimano stuff appear to be IB and ID which would put it in 1984, just outside the timeline. The brakes and brake levers are Weinmann. The bars are L&E.

Overall, the bike looks pretty good. Any info on Velo Schauff or the Shimano components?
