Looks like a Simplex dropout, and with "fishmouth" stay ends, Pivo/Stronglight almost certainly a French build.

YES! I chanced on this by checking the "usual suspects" on Classic Rendezvous, the little ring cable guide is a Le Jeune detail, tho may not be 100% exclusive to that make, still that's what I'd put my bet on (if I was gambling).

Clearly the Simplex DO has been tapped for Campy RD and one hopes that paint is just crap and not covering up really badly rusted metal-work. I'd still be checking it out in person if I was nearby (and in the market):
LeJeune, Moos bike

Raleigh Sprite in southern Delaware $65

It is just a Sprite or Record maybe, but it appears to have a front dyno-hub - but no lights.

Trek 18 speed 25" frame - $150 (mpls)


​​​​​​A beautiful trek . steel frame , horizontal drops , 27"tires(new) just tuned , old cables replaced.large frame 25". Look at the picture the frame is streched out like all treks from the early 80's. This gives it a soft comfortable ride.

I think it looks very much like a Carre type bike.

Is anyone near Pittsburgh?

1988 Centurion LeMans, Tange no.2 main frame with Mangaloy 2001 forks and stays, stock parts would be Exage Sport 6-speed SIS, will probably accept a 28 mm tire without fenders - I have a very rough-looking example in that year's other color scheme of magenta/white. Someone forgot to tell mine that it is only a modest mid-range bike, it rides like a much fancier machine with a snootier pedigree.
