My son bought this bicycle from the original owner, who was in the Air Force, stationed in Belgium. He felt he needed a bicycle, so he went down to the local bike shop, Jacky Sport in Ronse, which is apparently still there, and purchased this bicycle. The o/o told us you needed, by law, a lock, a light, and registration, all of which came with the bike; he even threw in two original Jacky Sport caps that he never wore.
I can't find much information on Marcel Kint bikes, so I'm posting this here in case somebody comes along looking for info.
- The bike came with Hamme rims, Normandy hubs, and M.M. Atom skewers, but the o/o purchased an extra set of Shimano ST hubs with Milremo rims from Jacky Sport when he got the bike; fitted with Hutchinson Sport tubs.
- Super Coureur saddle
- Weinmann Vainqueuer 999 brakes
- Hermesse 48/46 cranks
- Huret Allvit derailleurs
- Chromed lugs with gold accent
- Original, matching frame pump
- Christophe toe clips
The o/o brought it back to the U.S. courtesy of the U.S. Air Force, so, as they say, "rare, but not necessarily valuable." Still, given the details on the frame, the handlebar badging, and the Marcel Kint pedigree, all-in-all a very nice bike.
