Identify this bike?

I have a 10-speed that I aquired used in about 1970. It was my bike throughout high school and beyond. French-made, I think. The paint was in bad shape when I got it, and a friend convinced me to refurbish it, so all the original decals, etc. were history a long time ago. The original brand name was "Jaubert". It has cottered cranks, Huret/Svelto front/rear derailers. The front rim is "Samir", and has a fabric rather than rubber protector between the tube and spokes. The rim has grippers on the side which make for sure stops even in the rain, but wears down the brake rubbers quickly. Rear rim is Schwinn, almost certainly a replacement. The saddle is "Gauthier", pedals are "JRS" (I think - difficult to read), "Made in Belgium". The freewheel is Atom Competition. What type of other info would be helpful in identifying? I can post photos, assuming I get our digital camera working. What specific frame parts should I take pictures of?
