I think CV-6 is correct. You have a Carre/Lejeune in Elvish livery. The distinctive Carre stay caps, fishmouth dropout finish, brake bridge reinforcement and braze-on seat bolt ears all say Carre. The Lejeunes he built, however, had that particular arrangement of the top tube brake cable stops and that unique cable guide for the rear derailleur on the drive side seat stay. So cool that the bike is so meaningful to you and the lack of a serial is often the case with Carre builds. My Carre/Bertin C 37 doesn't have one either.
