My 70 touring model has the brazeon cable guides. Actually, I have a 71, 72, and 73 as well as the 70. I'll try to get photos of all four posted on Wool Jersey. This might show the progression of details in the early 70's.

BTW, since it seems I'll be building new wheels for the Sam Fitzsimmons 71, what tubular rims would be correct? My 72 has Mavic Championnat Du Monde, but I think there were several other rims used on early 70's Paramounts.
