This bike originated in France and in recent years the bare frame ended up on eBay and other sites in the U.S. where it changed hands a few times. This bike cost me a lot but she really needed to be rescued. I fortunately had most of the missing parts on hand. The decals are original and the paint just needed some minor repairs and color matching. Weighs in at about 20 lbs.
Final year for full Reynolds 531 frame for this model. Nervex lugs, Simplex dropouts.

Simplex front jockey shift derailleur, functions very well. Rear is Simplex JUY 543
