Raphael Geminiani 1500 DE LUXE

I was looking for an old bike to fix up, but not restore. I'd hate to ruin this bike by spraying it down with a coat of spray paint if it is worth anything. Looks like it is from the mid/early 60's and it is 15-speed. Other than that I don't know anything about it. I don't see any serial numbers or maker's marks.

Thanks!

Here's some high-res shots

have you been able to make out any writing on the seat tube transfer just below the "made in france" transfer?

looks to be nearly all original, save for someone's homemade w/b mount.

whatever you do please do not respray.

owned one from right around this time but it was about two models up. have not worked with this model.

drive side imagery is more helpful to forum readers essaying to assist you.

there is some history/background information here along with photos of several examples:

Hello, I restore old bikes from the 60s, would you consider selling? Do you know the size?

You know I'm not sure what size it is. I believe it's a 58...not 100% sure.


I would like to get $100 out of it. (that's what I paid for it)
