Kurt Denhoff:

I have a Torpado frame 62cm. It has hearts in the lugs as well as the torpado etchings. I also have I believe a fork and stem with torpado engraved. The Serial number is T0384. Does anybody have any idea as far as the worth of this frame or even the Model type. I do have the rear derailure which is a Nuovo Record and I have Super record cranks - I may also have a set of Nuovo record cranks.

Kurt: I think Torpado made a range of bikes. Their top model was the Super Light then Super Strada. Does yours have a tubing decal? That in general would indicate the model. Also, my Super Light had a decal on the top tube just behind the head tube saying the model name.
