Nice one, Rod!
I have one with Arabic texts, which I am not able to read and a bit curious because this Olympic games were controversial with the 'Munich massacre'.

And the bicycles on this stamp have structural problem - missing seat tubes, and oddly short handlebar stems..

Would have stumped me.

I knew it, but still I am amazed by the thorough knowledge of forum members! Thank you everyone.

Eli - great to see my isolated stamp is with the set, and the postmark words. Thanks for the info of the tiny stamp as well.

bicyclestamps - "progressive color proof" Ah, I can see the final 2 colours are missing on the version of mine. How it comes to me.. I don't remember!

Rod - I am not particularly into Umm Al Qiwain stamps. Would you like to have this fellow, joining your collection? I can post it if you like.

And the following is a response to the Australian stamp posted by bicyclestamps (in the previous page).

The Winter Solstice is coming closer, can't wait for the day time is getting longer. In this dark and shallowed light season, drivers have to be careful watching the road - this stamp is depicting the importance of having light in the dark European winter.

Hungary
18 August 1973 / Lights on the bike / design: S. Légrády



p.s. I have just checked how north Hungary is - well, where I am in London is much northern than Budapest. Sunset here is 15:53 today!

Good morning, Rod - good! I will post it shortly. No return needed - you have already posted me telegraph insulators cinderella from Sarajevo! This is my turn.

Very invisible, chic and nice one, bicyclestamps! I have never seen like that..

Here are more 'safety on bicycle'. First one is obvious, hand-signal (and head-lamp). The second one is the latest issue in the UK, electric-powered scooters are making fuss on the road, pavement, cycle lanes and even on railway platforms - nowhere they are welcomed.
