Rochet Super Sport
I found a Rochet Super Sport in the trash 2 years ago, no wheels or bottom bracket but looked awesome so I picked it up.
I later saw examples on Sheldon Brown's site, amongst other places. Not many though, and I slowly fell for the bike. I finally need a new town bike this spring and was about to hot rod it up. However, I am beginning to wonder if it is worth anything. I can post pictures later but the frame is in very good condition. What appears to be the original Hurst deraileur is there as are the Mafac brakes.
COlumbus 531 steel is good, and comparing it to other examples I'm imagining it to be a bike from the late 50's. I know complete it would be a treasure, what about in pieces?
I don't want to get rid of it but if it is significant I could be almost as happy with another Surly frame.
