Look Ma, No Hands!

recall finding it odd that the launch edition of the model was yet fitted with steel wheel rims and those ghastly Union 40U pedals...

a poor buy in the context of the contemporary market

if you are going to be getting a polyester leisure suit to ride it in remember to leave the zipper open down to the waist so you can show off all your chest hair & gold neck chains

you should also have a razor cut hairstyle and be smoking a menthol...

the ladies will love it! 🤣

It really strikes me odd the Le Tour was to be the Super Sports successor, but the SS had aluminum alloy rims?? OA only about 3lbs lighter a bike than the SS.
BTW Tim, i love that Kool lemon Le Tour out front there, very nice.

so nice! had one in 1975 bought one like it this spring i love it. the one i bought recently has full chrome front forks . and was the handlebar tape originally red?
If you look in the 75 catalog its shown with black tape but one as the buyer could opt for the matching color tape I guess. I read somewhere that full chromed forks were dealer replacements.

No, it was black. I think red looks better. Same for my Sports Tourer in Opaque red.
