    Nice job! Grand Jubile's are beautiful bikes, and if you are going to keep it there's no problem spending some money on it.
    Don't worry about "too shiny", polished aluminum can never be too shiny....

    Another summer project, 1983 Guido Messina. Like the Lejeune, I bought the frame here on BF.

    The OP's saddle has the shape of a 90, although many other Ideale models also had alloy rails (like my mod. 58). It came without the clamp. Ideale clamps for alloy rails are quite expensive, but lots...

    1968 Lejeune

    I saw this frame on Ebay France a couple years ago but didn’t bid on it. A few months later Shnibop offered it for sale on BF, and this time I did buy it. It’s in good structural...

    Have you confirmed that the rim is 700C? The blue label usually indicates 27", while the 700C had a red label.

    Almost all the responses have been in the "solo" category. Me too, most of the time-- it's a great way to get out of town for a while, clear out my head, and meditate on whatever. That said, I have...

    Kind of depends how picky you are. The damage doesn't look too bad and it's probably perfectly rideable. My beater commuter has a very small bulge on the dt from a front end impact and it doesn't...

    The paint looks cracked all over, so it might not be structural damage.
    It looks a lot like a Raleigh International frame. Is there any chrome under the lugs? Campagnolo dropouts?

    That's not a Raleigh International, but rather seems to be some lower level bike from the 60's or 70's. It could also be a high-end bike from the 50's but the picture doesn't show enough detail to...

    Dia-Compe 204 hoods fit Campagnolo Record, Modolo, Gran Compe, Suntour Superbe, and similar levers quite well. They look good,...

    Is the Carlton Professional frame the same as the Raleigh Pro? Sure looks like it.
    Also, the Flyer looks just like a Raleigh International except for the lugs.

    That looks like the classic English rack that I don't remember the name. I have never used one but I hear they are flimsy and prone to lateral sway. The ones Ian Hibbel trussed up with guy wires in...

    There is a lot of rust on that bike, which is not a good sign. At the very least the chain, derailleurs, and spokes are toast, and perhaps the steel parts of the brakes, cranks, pedals, headset,...

    For most applications I would go with a Blackburn for price, weight, rigidity, and looks. A brilliant, simple, elegant design, I would say it was the first really good mass-produced rear rack....
