For what it is worth, I trust the seller. We have bought a lot of vintage cycling items from these guys and have been treated well and they have been excellent with price, dependability and honesty. What their inside deal is, I don't know, because I guess it is none of my business, but they also, from the physical address they use, protecting us here in our country of the US. Many here are global cyclists, so hooray for vintage cycling worldwide. It is the most fun hobby.
I wish you all the greatest health and wellness, now and on the road,
La Grange, Texas
