    1970's Jeunet

    I have a chance to a get 70's Jeunet likely for free. The bike is complete but with no wheels. Sorry no pics at this time. My question is this kind of bike worth spending a little time to fix I could likely getting working with a good set of 700c's with the parts I have on hand. I ask this because I don't know much about the Juenet brand name other than its french.

    What Joe said. Jeunet was like a lot of bike boom brands. They had some nice stuff and they had gaspipe.

    ****'s Racing Bicycles in Santa Monica used to carry them way ay back, like 1972-73.
    The base model was like a Peugeot UO8. All the other models ****'s had wore tubulars. The top bike was similar to a PX-10. Biggest downside to me was the foil graphics.

    I worked at Bikecology back then and have never heard of ****'s Racing Bicycles.

    Interesting that the name got "cleaned" same pronunciation as Auto's, just beginning with an O. At the time Bikecology had just moved into the Bekins Storage building on Wislhire, from the original location up the way between Federal and Bundy. I don't recall if Alan killed off that competing store before or after the move closer to the beach.

    For the bike shop that no one could understand, there was Braun's Multiprises on Broadway, he had a vintage shop before it was fashionable. sold musical instruments too. Had a great Pogliaghi Tandem Track bike in the window for what seemed forever.

    I got the bike today and got it together so it rides. Will send pics soon. Best I can tell is that it is a 630 sport model with a 531 frame but almost none of the original parts are left except the rear brake headset and maybe bottom bracket.

    I don't think it is a 531 frame. Measure the seatpost, it's likely around 25.4.

    The giveaway is the fully chromed fork.

    A 531 french bike would be 26.4 or 26.6 seatpost.

    I think your crank was upgraded at some point.

    Thanks for the info I double checked the frame it is a 25.4. After taking it apart and getting a closer look it isn't a 531 frame but I can't ID what type it is. I thought it was a 531 because the pump mounts are on the top frame tube and most of the other frames had the pump mounts on the bottom tube.
