I bought one of these RRAs new in 1982. It was a metallic pale green (Fern Green comes to mind, but my memory may be playing me false). It was my first bike in 531 DB, so although it was a revelation compared to what I was used to, I didn't appreciate just how well it rode until I replaced i t with a more expensive machine in 531 DB by a famous small maker (still in business, so I won't name them) which was distinctly inferior in ride qu ality.
