I had a larger one of these and wish I had not sold it. They are nice riding bikes.

Good luck with your sale! I was just ogling one that Brian Chapman recently restored... Very tastefully upgraded to a modern drivetrain and laid down the fresh paint beautifully!

By the way, is the "1" on your keyboard broken? A 2972 model year made from Reynolds 532?

LOL !! I knew I messed up the 531 but I totally missed the 1972. My bad!

That restored Le Champion is very nice indeed. Cantilevers, no less. Cool

Ignore the numbers ! (Stronglight 93 &#128521. I love that teal and ivory paint scheme of the early LCs. If it was my size and I didnít have one in the queue I would be tempted for sure.
