Very interesting. I didn't know that, but I'm not surprised. I have two Davidsons, a 73 and a 79, and they are not only beautifully made but also two of my favorite bikes to ride.

My 1973 (first year) Davidson has the same brazed-on nuts for the water bottle cage as the 72 Quinn now on ebay. I asked Bill about it and he said there wasn't much else available at the time.
