No mudguards on this bike, but it does have a pair of chrome fenders, boxy in shape, wired for front and rear lights (the reason for the purchase.) Not a 531 bike, it has those clunky zig-zag lugs with windows. Mafac racer, Normandy HF hubs, JUY Simplex quick release, plastic headbadge, AVA stem with window in front, Lyotard 136R, Delrin.
By the way, even though this was a thrift store purchase, I happen to know the previous owner. He scratched his name on the top tube with a sharp object. Big block letters, clear to the (now rusty) steel. If you are reading this CHUCK ALBRECHT, shame on you.
Is this a tour bike, a neighborhood bike, or what? Any comments would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.
