Concord Bicycles?

Anyone have any info on Concord bikes? My first 10-speed, back in the mid-seventies, was a Concord Freedom 10. I just saw a Freedom 10 frame locked to a parking meter in downtown San Francisco, stripped to the bones. Brought back memories (of riding a 61-cm frame when I was 13 years old; 3 cm taller than what I ride now—I guess the science of bike fit has progressed a bit in the last 30 years…)

I know there is a new all carbon Concorde Squadra ( the PDM squadra used to be my absolute dream bike) and some othe Al and Cf mixed bikes but I don't think they have a US importer. Want to into business?

I doubt it's the same company. The bike I had cost $140 in 1974, which is about $560 in real money. I'm pretty sure they're out of business, but for the money, they did make a pretty decent double-butted lugged cromoly frame.
