I have a Jeunet same as yours, except mine is blue and somebody did a lot of detail lining on mine. Your chrome is a little better mine, and I think there a few more decals on mine. (It's been a while since I last looked at it.)
It took me about a 1 1/2 yrs after I got it, to find a set of clincher rims, but with paitence, it paid off.
Got a set of Mafac 27" clinchers with a Maillard helicomatic freewheel, 2 spare freewheels and the tool, off eBay.
Dont remember how much, but I was the only bidder so I got them for starting price.
All that being said, French bikes handle different, weigh more than Schwinns, are finicky, and not may people want them.
I'll never make any money if I sell it. I think I'd be lucky to get what I originally paid for it. ($45.00)
Right now it's in sealed bag in my utility barn, but after seeing a pictue of yours, but maybe this weekend..........
Oh yeah, like Sheldon's website on old French bikes says, get rid of the stem and handlebars-THEY DO BREAK!!!
