1960's Era Jaubert
 
I have a 1960's era 10-speed that I am trying to research, but have found very little. Apparently a very obscure brand. Please follow this link to pictures: http://www.geocities.com/fritz125541/Jaubert A few examples have turned up, but does anybody know anything about the company that made these?

Hey. I've got the exact same bike in metallic green with white stencilled logo. It's in great shape with all the original parts. Crazy!

You were over limit on your bandwidth, the pic isn't available right now.

I had one of those. I bought it off a friend who was moving back in 1974. He got it at White Front (a discount chain) in the late 60's for $49.95

It was purple, had a Huret Svelto derailleur, steel rims with small flange hubs with wing nuts, and the name in stencil on the downtube. The headbadge was a foil decal with a the name and the Eiffel Tower on it.

I am anxious to see the picture

Tried again, the pictures worked!

The forks look like a replacement from a Raleigh. Your description of the headbadge (headsticker?) agrees with mine.

I wish I knew more. I can only speculate as to why White Front was selling them-they seemed to buy out odd lots and close outs. I got a genuine Wham-O Wheelie Bar there for a few dollars when they originally sold for $20. I wonder if they bought a whole load of them from a distressed wholesaler or something. The one I had was no great work of art, but plenty respectable in light of its contemporaries. I kept mine only a short while and sold it to a friend. Shortly thereafter it was stolen. That was the last one I had seen or heard of until your post.
