Jeunet track bike




Hey all - I posted this in the SS/FG forum but I was told I may have better luck here. This is my daily rider, and one of my most cherished pieces.

Beyond knowing it is a Jeunet, I know very little about this bike. I would love to be able to date it, or to know a bit more about this model. I am assuming it was an entry-level machine, given that it is drilled for a front brake, and features no tubing decals (although I know that this doesn't necessarily mean it isn't something nice like Reynolds or Columbus). It is a relatively light frame, and it clearly had some nice design considerations: I love its geometry and its feel on the road is great.

I recently overhauled the BB and found it to have an unbranded spindle and cups. The headset is also unbranded. I've replaced the cranks (Peugeot DS/Shimano NDS when I bought it) to some age-appropriate, almost NOS TA/Tevanos with a 49t Stronglight chainring. In back I have a 16t surly. The chain is an 1/8" Miche but I am thinking about switching to 3/32" to match the rest of the drivetrain.

In any case - I would love to have any and all additional info about the bike. I've seen a couple of them online, but no one seems to be able to place them. I'd love to find a catalogue page or something, but I know I might be pushing it.

Thanks a million!

Look up the component codes on anything you took off, or anything remaining that is original.

Well, the BB spindle was marked with the following:

Bo 5N
MTBS708

Not sure if that will help. I'm not positive that these pieces were original to the bike, but given the difficulty in tracking down french-threaded cups, I'm assuming so.
