No offense, however: With a cheap cottered crankset, steel rims & what looks like a crashed Motobecane fork and stamped dropouts; I don't see anything very high end about this at all.
Personally, the only thing slightly interesting is this early version NR RD. The hubs might be interesting too, otherwise it looks like a good candidate for the metal chipper.

Short chainstay length, meaning, at least to me, that this isn't some chump low-end model. It's been spray painted, sadly, and that price should be negotiable IMO.

Looks suspiciously like a Torpado. Not high end but it's probably all chrome under that paint.

^^^^ Something seriously wrong, too, with the cotter pins - crank arms aren't 180 degrees apart.

This Gian Robert has been abandoned for at least 10 years in this very spot, an area that's notorious for bike thieves.
All chrome under the peeling enamel and the same lugs, Gian Robert branded Nouvo Sport/Valentino group.

Could this be a Euro TdF? "Fait Main" instead of "Hand made", no chrome on the seat/chain stays.

No worries. This era of bike, which I presume is still '60s/70s is not my area of expertise, let alone interest. Chunky lugs and heavy tubing (compared to late-'70s and '80s bikes) seemed to be everywhere, even on nicer offerings. I thought perhaps someone might see through the horrible paint and condition of the frame and see what good the bike have been before time and poor decisions relegated it to near junk status.

Agreed, these bikes can be interesting to the right person. I volunteer with the bike coop when I'm in France visiting family and every now and then one of these kind of Italian gaspipe jobs winds up in the donations. Of note, I've seen Legano & Bianchi versions of the trusty old IGH 3 speeds & coaster-brake populaires - in well kept condition they're rather impressive (to me a least).

Does the Raleigh fork look a little tweaked back?
Not too far from me but too small.

Raleigh fork may be slightly bent (or not). Could be just the camera angle. People, please don't spend 10 pages arguing about this. But if it is bent, it's minor enough that a good bike mechanic could pretty easily bend it back, if need be.

My first fixie was an old Lotus with a bent fork. The overlap was terrible, as you can imagine, but I thought it was supposed to be that way and was so proud of myself for learning to ride it--with toe clips on city streets-- without killing myself.

On another topic, I thought this was interesting because it has dual steering. Not sure if that would cause fights or prevent them--cause them would be my guess; and also that those fights could easily end in disaster. (Unless there's some way of choosing one steering station or the other, but if there is I didn't see it in the pictures.)

Ah yes, nothing like a little steering with someone's back directly in your line of sight.
