Subject: [CR]Introduction

Hello together,

just joined the list and want to shortly introduce myself. My name is Richard Timm, living in Hamburg, Germany, 40 years old. Working as a programmer doing several tasks for Kraft Foods Int.

I owe some bicycles, not all of them will fit the needs to be on topic (90ies Guerciotti or handmade modern "Wechsel" (one man factory building frames in Hamburg- steel and aluminium).

Probably most on topic of my cycles is my 1980 Motobecane Pro Mark II with complete Dura Ace EX equipment- one of the lightest and most expensive cycles motobecane ever built, I guess. Really like the pedals of the Dynadrive. I use another set of wheels on daily rides and aero Levers- if you are interested, here's a picture: http://www.brotlos.com

I wonder if anyone could tell me more about a 60ies Motobecane cycle. Pictures can be found at http://www.radbasteln.de/motobecane2/Untitled1.html

It isn't really lightweight but it is in complete original setup and as charming as most of these elderly french bicycles. Complete Huret 2x4, Mafac brakes, I guess.

best regards, Richard
