Yes, from 1972 to 1975 for sure, various models, some equal to a Peugeot UO8, some up to a PR10. Most probably French threaded on the hub too.

Not too bad, I thought they rode a bit beyond their price, the Simplex front derailluers have a reputation for breaking at the plastic body, so be careful if you torque the bolts.

You may have lucked out with an ISO freewheel. Look for something like "BSC" on the lockring.

The only thing printed on the freewheel is "Made in France" and Maillard it's a 14t - 28t 5 speed

thanks for all the help

Well, I've got very little to add, except to say that a normal freewheel threaded on quite nicely on my Jeunet:
