Definitely NOT a Paramount. If I had to guess, I'd say it's a Bottecchia. Color, chrome, and distinctive fork crown all match the one I had 40+ years ago. And you can "just" see the edge of a badge riveted on to the head tube. That would clinch the ID.

Very clean vintage French sport / touring bike. Reynolds 531 frame & fork, TA crank, Campagnolo deraileurs, Suntour barcon bar-end shifters, Brooks Pro saddle, Bluemels fenders. I believe it's a 58cm bike. Price is firm, cash only. Thanks.



Nice collection of parts.

Possibly from a small builder or someoneĎs frame building class project.

At $60, the whole thing is a bonus, these are pretty nice, not a true mixte with the half/split DT but a great deal at those $$$.

I built one for my sister, it's by far her favorite bike.

I sent a message but got no answer. Assuming this was legitimate, I hope it found a good home.

Needs a rescue.

1960 Frejus $300 Midlothian, IL


Facebook IL Frejus

1960 Frejus High end handmade Italian racing bike. Very expensive bike in its day. Hasnít been used for many decades. Needs a complete refurbishment. Bike has a lot of cool period components on it. Sew up wheels, campy front hub, Campy derailers, Campy Crank bearings, Campy headset, Williams crank, Padilla rear brake, Universal front brake and levers. Nice Brooks saddle. Frame is either Reynolds or Columbus tubing with Campy dropouts. Havenít been able to confirm frame tubing with 100% certainty. Bike weighs 21 lbs. more pics on request. No shipping. Pick up only. Could deliver if your close to Southside of Chicago. These bikes sell for big money when refurbished. Priced to sell at $300. Was going to fully refurbish but my interests have been diverted towards a classic Harley Davidson motorcycle I inherited. Great project for a old school high end bike collector.
