Mmmm, very nice.

I had a 750, but the front triangle is a different design, despite being the same series.

Proflex are the Porsche 911 of bikes aren't they? I don't mean they're bisteringly fast, I mean they manage to produce about a million variations on a theme :lol:

There is a case of crankset Mavic above, I would like to know if it is of origin?

The 550 model is from 1991, not 1990.
Very beautiful, I have one too in process of restoring.
