louison bobet road bike

Hi I've been given an old Louison bobet road bike and wondered how I would find out how old it is . It has Sachs and huret gear changers on the frame and wolber tyres and lyotard rims ? Can anyone help.

Photos of the bike would help. Drive side complete, close up of markings, lugs and the like.
Please do not "like" my posts. This isn't Facebook.

In the mid 60's one of my older brothers was in University and bought a used Louison Bobet to ride. It was a really big deal in the neighborhood as no one rode a "racing bike". I loved the decal of M. Bobet on the seat tube!!
