So I have a number of bike frames that I'd like to build up and spotted a complete bike with a nice component set that would make for a good donor but just out of curiosity I'd like to know if there is any info out there on this donor bike before I commit some sort of crime against classic bikes.
The Bike brand seems to be "Gentleman Sport" and model "Special Competition", it has a nice set of gold Mafac and Simplex components and the frame is nicely finished, so the overall bike is quite an attractive package. There are no tubing decals but the overall bike weight (without pedals) it exactly 10kg/22lbs.
My theory/guess is it's a catalog or higher end department store present for Daddy bike or something along those line. Pretty tight cluster on the back sprocket, though the chainrings offer some relief at 50/42.
