Here's a shot in the dark. I've been offered a bike, from the original owner, with the description as follows (verbal):

"Expensive racing bike made for me in about 1973 or 1974 by an old racer named Vivay Langade (spelling is probably incorrect). He owned a shop on the outskirts of Copenhagen Denmark."

I met the owners wife on my return flight from Denmark recently. Apparently, the bike was used in Denmark until about 1980 and was then boxed up, shipped to the States and has been in storage here in CT ever since. It is still crated up and the owner cannot recall if the bike was branded Langade or something else nor does he recall anything about it other then it is a pearlesant white and was very expensive back when purchased.

Not much to go on but this list has produced some miracle information in the past..... so, any help, ideas, leads????????????????

Thanks in advance,
