Dale: I found another style of Binda straps. In addition to the Extra, I found Extra Crispy in a burned out bike shop. The plastic did not look that attractive. So what model would you call these? eBay # 190155257217 Bruce wrote:

IIRC, those are Binda Supers which I think came out mid 1970s. I am pretty sure I bought and use those arounfd 1975 so they are not far off... ? FWIW, Binda straps were available three variations: - "Regular" which was plain leather and came in colors including red, blue, brown, yellow, white and ? - "Extra" had black plasticky laminate on outside of one side only. They came in black or natural/whitish. - "Super" had the laminate sandwiched between two layers of tan leather.

Since I posted the photos of my 72 Super Pantografata, two persons have suggested that the Binda straps that came with, may be later than the bike. If anyone can help date the straps, please let us know. Here's a link to a few close-ups of the one of the straps:

Thanks to all,
