Here is a great example of a vintage bike that was affordable and lightweight. The Grand Prix was right above the Record so just one step above their lowest priced road bike. Quite a good-looking bike for the price. Check out these pictures:
Above bike is the 23 1/2″ size. I don’t believe the saddle is stock and it did not come stock with fenders. It would however have had tires like the catalog image.
20/30 steel tubing and fully lugged frame
Weinmann center pull brakes with extension levers
Huret Challenger derailleurs
Raleigh Cottered Crank
Came in 4 color options: Sky Blue/Black, Carmine Red/Black, Bronze Green/Black, and White/Black.
DL115 (Men’s) came in sizes 21 ½, 23 ½, and 15 ½”
DL115L (Ladies) came in sizes 19 ½ and 21 ½”
The suggested retail price was $159.00
