Good price with that setup. I have the '75 with Jubilee and the same paint scheme, a head-turner and an excellent ride.

Thanks for all the kind comments. It's a nice looking bike that turned out well. I've just got to move a few items.

Atlanta area. I have shipped a few bikes recently and am comfortable with that as well.

I just got one of these earlier this spring from bargainguy and it is easily the most comfortable vintage bike I've ridden. If you research this early model you'll find that's the general consensus - it's a fantastic "sport touring" bike that someone will be lucky to own.

ARGHH! I think this is just a size too big for me.
Spent about 30 minutes rummaging around parts to see what I could sell off to buy this before I did some measurements on my own bikes.

It's really lovely. GLWS!

How long is the top tube? The leg height is just right but I'm afraid these French frames usually have a much longer reach than I prefer... Worth asking, though. It's a beautiful bike!

I'm more than curiously tempted by this bike, but I'm two or three paychecks out from being able to purchase it and will leave it up to chance! What are the rims and hubs, if I may ask? Detailed photos of the wheels are about the only thing I can't find in your album. Thanks!

It might overlap too much with your Raleigh International in road feel.

I think so too. I have to say the color scheme and Jubliee are mighty pretty. If I lived in a house with a basement and garage n+1 would be in full effect.

Apologies for the late response, I thought I had already responded. I believe it is a Campagnolo style hanger.
