Sounds a bit like what I have now. Ten speed bike with steel frame, no tubing grade label, only lugged at the headtube, tapered chainstays. Headtube lugs have a stylized "M" superimposed over an ellipse. Chrome fork crown has "M" cutouts on the sides. Paint is blue, decals white, small "Made in France" decal on toptube near stem.
Double chainring, Nervar cottered cranks, Simplex FD, Huret Allvit RD, Suntour downtube shifters, Pivo stem, Weinmann Vainqueur 999 brakes, Weinmann levers with no suicides. Normandy hubs, steel rims.
I've never had anything quite like it. The "M"s have me wondering and speculating. Educated guesses from those more informed than myself would be welcome.
