Hey Guys, I recently won this 1973 Super on ebay, which I believe is the same vintage and approx condition. Not sure if I got a super bargain, or if this more recent sale price was an abberation! Though its hard to see, it has the drilled chainring and pantographed stuff. I'll try to get better photos for the group if interested. Nice dusty rose color, too!
