Frejus Tour de France, 1964

Time to sell this and perhaps move on to another project. Unfortunately this one is too big for me. The gearing is also too tall for me. I believe this bike is better suited for a collector/aficionado. I am somewhat new to high quality vintage bikes. If you have been paying attention here, this bike has been posted with questions before.





It was in decent shape at time of purchase, but needed cleaned up and some stuff taken off. Not too many marks/scratches. One on top tube from a lock perhaps. Also thinning paint on one spot on fork leg where I tried to get tape adhesive off from generator mounting. I saw no dents or frame damage.



as purchased

I wanted to at least make it rideable and presentable, so I got rid of the safety levers and added new brake cables and tape.





Size is 24" from BB to top tube lug center at seat post, 23" from BB measured vertical to center of top tube, 23" ctc top tube, 33 3/4" standover height, 10 5/8"BB height.

Earlier discussion and advice and comments here:
Frejus Torino Tour de France

Valuations are confusing on these bikes it seems especially for a newbie like me.
Link here to C&V appraisal forum;
Frejus Tour de France, 1964?

So, I think I will ask $450 which doesn't seem out of line. I bought it for a good price and am not trying to make much. I just had fun, but this one doesn't really fit me. Price does NOT include the saddle or toe clips. New guy, so this will be local pickup as I don't really know about shipping fragile bicycles. I am in Toledo Oh and can drive up to a couple hours to meet halfway which includes quite a large portion of the midwest. I would be interested in trades for something too; a quality vintage Italian similar to this but more my size, or a very nice vintage tourer/sport tourer as an upgrade over my old Schwinn SuperSport. Thanks for looking.

Price reduction to $400. If it doesn't get any interest at that price, I will keep it. I have a couple freewheels I can try on it if I keep it. It is 120mm rear spacing, so a 5 speed 14-28 I have ought to work to get a couple easier gears for me. The riding quality is quite pleasant, so I am not out either way. I did get some vintage Christophe toe clips and straps to put on it, and they will be included if it does sell. A couple of other pics including the minor paint loss where a generator was mounted. Quite presentable for being 55 years old.
