By the way, the more I think about these bicycles, the more I think they miss the CR cutoff date by a year or two. >>

You are correct there at the end, Fred. There was a glued together Vitus-made Peugeot AND the Pechinney process Peugeot's that were recalled called because they were not glued but swaged or pressed together (no glue, no welds, not threaded, not bolted!) And all most likely Off Topic, both time wise and aesthetically.
