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!
