I think it lived in a hay stack. (hahaha) Seller wanted 150-but I got him down to 75/I like projects-this one seems to be a BIG one! I think its suppose to be white. Seller says no rust, so hopefully it is just grime. Don't have it yet......may sell out from under me. Thanks. Updates to come

Got it. And it sat in weeds. There is a freewheel in there-Normandy. Rims are araya-hubs normandy competition-Stronglight crank-bb-and headset. Pivo stem/yet to find a name on the bars. mafac cp comp and levers, and lastl simplex drs (don't know the model) It is indeed rusted. Just the paint! Never seen paint do this before. So much for decals.....Don't know the diff between 100 to 300 models-but the frame seems light weight, there is only the shape of a decal
PS-I haven't found any component codes or serial #

yeah. looks like it was once white...great project potential...have fun! Might be a Mercier 300(?) Probably has at least a little 531, maybe the whole thing is.

Price is about right. There's a nice bike underneath, but it is in really poor shape. Its one of those projects, that I would value at a few of the better components: crankset, bottom bracket, and brake calipers. Those alone are worth the $75. If you can save the paint, it will be a really nice deal.
