Some History was created by ANELCT175

I'm trying to put together a journal about my CT3 and the CT3 in general.  Does anyone know what a CT3 original MSRP was for a US bike?  Was it available with any options or factory accessories? It seems that it was available in Yellow Gold only.  Does anyone have a paint code?  Also does anyone have any fun facts about the CT3?

) but I can tell you my RT1 was $854.90 from City Cycle Sales in Kansas in 1971.
Here's a link to how with the help of a sticker on my bike and the chaps on the forum I was able to speak with the original owner of my bike.

I'm sure some folks on here will know the MSRP of a CT3 but if you have no luck you could always try contacting City Cycle Sales in Kansas, I'm sure they'll have that info somewhere.

Official color name is "gold dust".  Paint code won't mean anything these days..  00M2

There's a decent road test article in the Tech Library on the CT3.
