Hey thats what the decal says. Full 531 DB throughout. This is a product of Steyr Daimler Puch of Graz, Austria. Sears had a deal that sold the Steyr (lowest marque), then the Austro Daimler (highest) and Puch (middle) bikes were brought in under seperate distribution. With varying cosmetics these are very neat riders. Even the cheap bikes had great tubing because the SDP "works" made their own great straight guage stuff. Not "gas pipe" by any means.

Actually, when all is said and done about production bicycles, probably the best as long as you like a long top tube.
