I bought the TC 8296 about 6 years ago at 15 km from my home.She had been sleeping there in a barn from 1970. I will sent you a picture how I found her (see above). The last three years I did a complete restoration, which I finished in september 2000. Snce then I rode about 5000 km, the first 2000 with some 'child diseases'. In June this year my wife Christine and I made a trip in the Pyrenees of 1500km without any problem (image 2).
