  1. That's not a '78; it is a mid-late '73. The decals are no earlier than '73 (self-adjusting brake levers came out the same year), and the '74 models had top tube cable stops.

    Granted, this data - unfortunately - may not assist in its recovery, but it is good to know; particularly if it has a '78-dated hub.

    It is also possible that it has the serial stamped in the location of a '70-'72/3 (buried deep under the paint on the seatlug top) rather than at the back of the seattube (1973+), which may serve as an additional identifying feature.
