    I have even stopped to push a dead car out of an intersection. The driver did seem pretty amazed some guy on a bike...

    That's a cool bike.

    I have seen the "c" spindle pop up occasionally on ebay.it. Don't know much about it.

    You are right that it was typical to use a pro's name to sell bikes. They made Learco...

    RD is easy, a Simplex or Huret TdF. Easy to find and somewhat cheap. You could also get away wit a 3-speed freewheel instead of the 4. French ebay has plenty of those. But iirc, Atom 4-speeds are...
