Replica of a bicycle designed by Ettore. At the time it was not possible to
produce it due to the technical complications of the constructions. Due to
the current available techniques this design could now be build.

Was it a replica (i.e. an exact copy of the original) or did it contain modern mechanical components from Taiwan or wherever ?

Of course the fittings (wheels, gear change etc.) were modern.

At the festival I heard that about 4 - 5 were build at the time, at least one of which exists in a French museum.

See: http://www.bugattirevue.com/revue29/t72.htm

Note that there was a difference in connections between the small tubes, in what appears to be the original, as well as in the other replica shown, connections are made using same-size tubes. In this replica plates were used, which probably gives a more torsion-stiff frame.
