All, I had one of the few white Profesionals that I ever saw, it was a longer wheelbase in the 41" range vice the ~39.5 of the others that were silver. It also had low flange hubs when I thought (maybe) the silver road racing gemometry versions had High flange? Aw, maybe not... It was a 23" frame. The shop was in an industrial part of San Jose that I can't recall the name. This White one was claimed to be older but maybe not. No serial number 30+ years later...

Talk about half-baked construction -- the rear dropouts were so visably crooked that it looked like a HS metal shop project. Paint was nice and as a "rich" 12-year old paperboy I was proud to have my first all (except 68's)-Campagnolo NR lightweight! Moved up from a Raligh SuperCorse...

Saddle was the flatter than a Unicanitor Mexico copy, not too good so I put on a Brooks Pro just like my HERO Eddy!

Man, I loved that bike until it was lifted right out of my open garage in mid-afternoon! That's when I rode my first Eisentraut A and I was hooked and ended up with a Limted in 1976... and the rest has been much the same...
