I would like to own an elan again. I had a 1983 new in similar colour to this one with campag groupset, suede black saddle white cabling and bar tape. I loved it - I had a serious health issue and stupidly sold it. I’ve been searching for years to find one.
I had two of these back in the eighties. They both got stolen, the first one in 1984. I spotted it on eBay a few months ago - 37 years after it was stolen. I knew it was the same machine as it had a very distinctive dent on the top tube and all the same upgrades as I'd done to mine in 1983.
