Weinmann alloy 650B wheels,

Juy bits put things into the late fifties to early sixties time, assuming them to be original to cycle

Rear derailleur appears to be much later; very cool bike though! Paint is awfully nice - a respray

juvela : I think the juy stuff is original, because the shifter on the top tube appears to be mounted to a brazed on base, and the double cable stop near the seat lug.

assumed this as well due to the stamped sheet outer plate

then noticed what appeared to be thumbwheel adjusters in the interior...

just not enough pixels in the image!

am sure you are correct - exactly like always!

it may have been fitted with a TdF at the factory and the owner longed for more capacity...and better shifting(!) so this later seventies era model was mounted...

Almost certainly; not a colour I thought would be thought suitable (or even be available) for the original machine, and the decals are clearly vinyl not water-transfer.

Is this what you're looking at? That's about the best I can do without firing up Linux.

I am 99% certain the RD is a S001 from early 80s. The "improved" Prestige.... (Actually I have one and it shifts very well, but got it brand new for something like $13 on sale so it should).

Schweinhund What section did you enlarge?

Overall, someone did a really lovely job putting together a nice example of that style of bike. I just noticed on reexamination the pump pegs behind the seat tube so that is another indication that the frame and many components are indeed early.

Edit: I spent some time looking through catalogs and while never a precise thing it appears the the pump pegs moved to the down tube by 1963 for any of the models this bike might have been, so I would place it as originally at most a 1962. Most of the french models that meet the other specs of this bike were 650B and had only 3 speeds, so would love to see a closer view of the rear derailleur areas. Also most of the models that had the top tube shifter also had upright bars.....the drop bar models usually had a down tube shifter for the read and if a 8 or 10 speed a lever shifted front.

I'd be happy to take that bike out for drinks, dinner, maybe a movie after?
Love it.

thanks for all of the enlightened comments!

have enjoyed following along

the machine must certainly have high sentimental value to an owner to invest so much energy into this very nice restaurazione

whereas every school lad knows by comparison that Ontario is a virtual banana plantation

here in coastal california the natives know that when ambient temps drop down to about 15c it is time to break out the down garments...

5 degrees Celsius today with bright sunshine. Absolutely balmy compared to, let's say, Ontario, BC, Alberta etc.
Gave me a chance to clean and touch up some rust on the '93 Volvo.
