Looks legit, a sort of transitional 1983 (frame) -1984 (components) bike. Or maybe just 1984 bike with 1983 colors?

Good luck.

The two bikes that I've seen that you've posted about being interested in are very different size-wise.

The Jeunet looks to be about 54cm. This one looks to be around 58cm.

If you're not familiar with what size bike you should be on- be very careful about making sure it's comfortable to you- not "I'll get used to it" comfortable. There's lots of theories about how you should determine your fit.

It's a bad-ass bike. If you need some spare parts, have some here from a black Turbo.
