General Information
Randonneur bend version of the Sakae (SR) Road Champion handlebar.  Notice the word 'England' under Sakae Custom on the left sleeve.  Only the center sleeve is anodized on this model.

I added a Similar version, except this was mad in Japan. This was on a 1981 Schwinn LeTour.  Andypop1

Brand Information(click to expand)
Date of Manufacturing / Production Code for SR seatposts (at least for the 80's):
The date of prodcution of SR (Laprade) seatposts is shown around the min.insert line as follows:
"letter"-"double digit number", e.g. F-81 oder L-81, while the letter should be the month and the number will be the year of production.
So F-81 seems to be June 1981 while L-81 would indicate December 1981.
