Here's the bike...
and here's what he told me.
"It is completely original except for the tires and the Fizik saddle (leather with titanium rails, which at the time of purchase was half the cost of what i am asking for the bike). It has Suntour Symetric friction shifters, old Mavic MA 2 rim (rare) on the rear, with a Wolber Gentleman 81 Super Champion rim (even more rare) on the front. It has a Maillard rear hub and cassette, and a Maillard front hub. It also is equipped with a Guidons Philippe drop bar, Nervar cranks, Spidel skewers, front and rear Suntour ARX derailleurs, a CTA stem, and the original Laprade seat post. Bike rides really nice, straight and fast."
Is this bike worth the 300.00? I'm asking for a friend who is looking for a nicer classic road bike that he will ride very often. I looked up the Mavic MA2 rim and found just one rim selling for 50.00.
Thank you very much!
