The front derailleur looks like a Suntour Cyclone, and the shifters may be Cyclone as well. I can't ID the brakes. The "Francheschi" logo (and maybe the headbadge) looks like it was sprayed on through a stencil, and pretty sloppy at that, but the bike looks pretty interesting. It's probably worth looking at.

I agree I think I would give this a look if it was close.

Sure not all of them do but you want to cover all your bases. There are hard core Columbus fans and hardcore Reynolds fans. Some Italian even stoop to using Tange tubes on their lowerend bikes.

Looks like a 5 speed feewheel Vasile. Probably sew-up tires, and looks like a domestic european market bike. I'd say late 1970's. I'd give it a good cleaning, might take a while to find a buyer. Chris

How about De Francheezie?



Seriously, that looks like a very cool vintage project.

Well, I said OK to the seller. For 65$ will be a nice blue bike for me.
