1978

This is my third GJ. It was only missing the seat. I put 700c on it but the OG rigida/Normandy wheels should spin well when I get to them and buy some folding pro-tites.


Commuter mode.

Shakedown cruise.

If you can ride that saddle angle, you're a better man than I.
Nice build.

Not sure I've ever seen that color on a Grand Jubile before. Is that a European market bike? Interesting component also.

Collected this 1975 a few weeks ago. Replacement rear wheel, look like it came off a Mirage. Otherwise original. Itís in the queue for 700cís and a tidy up. If my wife doesnít enjoy it itíll be a guest bike.
