They made loads of these ahead of the Tdf the same year as the Festina scandal.
They were on special offer before the Tour was over. They sold by the truckload.
Very durable bikes if a little on the heavy and unforgiving side - one of my regulars has one that used to be her Dad's that was resprayed after an "argument" with a motor vehicle. And it's still going strong.
