Like I said, I have 26.8 in 2- 1973s, 1- 1974, and 1- 1973 Champion. They were original bikes with all paint, decals intact. My English 531db bikes take 27.2. Also one of the 1973 Grs had as it's sticker full 531db stays and forks. Garanti Construit Avec Tubes Ren fories, Fourreaux De Forrchi, Et Arrieres, with a large 531 angled across the sticker. Maybe we don't know all the answers yet. Dickey Greer West Monroe,La Subject: Re: [CR]Re: Ken Toda ~ Grand Record

Are you sure about the 26.8 on the 70's GR? The 70's GR's were metric gauge 531 DB main tubes (and forks). Metric gauge 531 DB frames nearly always took 26.2, 26.4 or 26.6 posts.

The early 70s GR with 531DB tubes, used a 26.8 seat post. I have 3 GRs and 1 Champion. Also the Early 80s Team Pro with Colombus SL calls for a 27.0, but, it won't even try to start in, where a Campy 26.8 is snug enough to scratch

the post up.
