What is this bike? I know I've seen it around these forums before. (And not just becuase it's one of those upside down bikes.)

Something low-end French, maybe?

Looks kind of like a late 60's Raleigh Record. Kind of like the one I have...


Could you get some better pictures of it or the components?

Different fork and it looks like different lugs to me. I don't know what it is myself though.

Appears to have a Pivo stem, from what I can see.

low-end, but could be French or Italian iron from the bike-boom era. Seems like a home-done paint job (nobody would paint the dropouts and forkends black in a factory) and the parts might be a collection of whatever junk came to hand: replacement cottered crank and Huret Allvit RD, etc. The green paint on the stem and brakelevers round out the "ghetto" handlebar treatment.

Oh, don't be so sure about that. I've seen it.
