Non DS picture but looks to be a Motobecane Jubilee with Huret jubilee derailleurs (and the rear looks to be a long cage). Mismatched wheels, poorly maintained, and ugly pedals. Not a screaming deal at $300 in Minneapolis but worth taking a look at for the right person.

Shoot, I just paid twice that for the same year/model that's requiring a metric blank-ton of cleanup. For some reason, the title to the above ad has been changed to '30" 18 speed mountain bike'; no price change. The frame geo, u-brake and braze-ons match mine, so it may actually be what it was previously title as. Obviously a re-spray; let's hope they knew what they were doing, painting over a full-chrome frame.

It's certainly a "Modern" version if at all a legit Allegro, never seen one with that style seat cluster, etc. but could be one of the "Mondia" re-brands as mentioned by Craig G. in his blog. In which case "a good Swiss bike" but not from the original Allegro factory.

Oh- I usually change the ad titles to what the bike is or as close as I can guess. Sellers often don't have a clue.

And that yellow and green is a factory paint job, but with the decals removed. Here's how it looks in with them on:

Ha, ya learn something new every day. I was just going by this skimpy catalog transcript - https://bikehistory.org/catalogs/198...in.html#sierra - mentions "unique chrome bottom section", and no reference to the two-tone full paint. The blue one I bought is a fully chromed frame, as evidenced by the peeling paint; I wonder if the green/yellow two-tone is perhaps NOT chromed underneath.

BTW, these also featured Weinmann Concave rims, something I don't know if I've ever seen elsewhere in a 26.

......aaaaaannnnndddd, it's gone.
