Baroudeur Made me hungry for a Red LeJeune, I got two. (photos)
In his thread here
, he found a red LeJeune after not buying the first one.
By chance a pair of Red LeJeune's appeared on my local listing, I thought it was fate so I called right away.
Said I was looking forward to pick up a bike for my self and one for the wife intime for summer, and would be over at 7 that evening.
The none drive side photos leave a bit to chance, but hopefully kept other 'flippers' from being intrested. I didn't trouble the seller with asking for extra photos. I could see a stronglight 49d-ish star shaped crank on the ladies bike, a green triangle sticker on the fork leg on the mens bike and also no rack/fender eyelets. Those three things were enough to get me commited on the 120km rush hour round trip.
Pick up, I stopped by a friends house to pick up a peugeot he found at work
the mens bike was 57cm, with sr cranks, spidel gears and campagnolo hubs.
the ladies bike had mafac racer and mafac levers. Plus 49d cranks and suprisingly campagnolo high flange hubs on clincher rims.
The good luck continued, the peugeot had record hubs on clincher rims.
I got lucky this time, often I arrive and find not what I was expecting or a dent.
fortune favours the bold and all that, one more photo soon.
