    Is this worth it?

    Anybody know anything about this bike? I know Jacques Anquetil was one af the best racers of all time, and rode Gitanes. It's about a hour drive, is it worth it?

    For $20, you can't get stung too bad!

    Dan,

    Can't go too wrong for $20, I'd go for it.

    The last two bikes on my list are a 50's Lenton Grand Prix and a '64 Raleigh Record.

    I have a Jacques Anquetil. It looks a lot like a low end early 70's Peugeot. Mine has Huret shifters with down tube levers. It does have the orignal decals with Jacques' picture on the seat tube.
    I found a price list that shows the dealer price was $55 in 1968. I paid $40 for mine.
