Apparently he was about to leave:

Any info/ideas on the bike? I see a Reynolds tubing sticker, I think. Really nice looking ride.

A very nice bike indeed. Top of the bill for the era, I'd think. I have tried to find out out what it is, but no luck so far. What is visible of the decal on the seat tube looks familiar, but my memory isn't exactly photographic.

The style indicates a Dutch, or maybe Belgian, bike.

Jacques Anquetil, in 1951, pictured with what looks to be an Automoto Champion Du Monde. Automoto, a brand with an enormous heritage, was bought by Peugeot in 1959 and killed soon after.

That’s French television host and cycling superfan Michel Drucker on the left, and Jacques Anquetil on the right, on the set of Le Sport en fête, a sports-variety show from the ’70s.

Honestly, I want to do a google search on this image. I found it on the interwebz and I don't remember the source.
