     I have some knowledge and experience with LeJeune bikes and visited the factory in 1983. But there are a number of other people on the list who can supply all sorts of details, that I can't, about LeJeune bicycles. So I'll wait for the real experts to answer before I try to add anything.
     What really intrigue me are the cap and jersey. When we visited the factory, Monsieur LeJeune gave us (we/us being my wife and me) a couple of jerseys and caps. But the caps were something like a cross between a normal cycling cap and a baseball cap; and the jerseys had flocked lettering. I doubt these were the sort of things worn by serious LeJeune racers.
     So I'm curious what your cap and jersey look like. Of course, your stuff is a bit older...
     Best regards,
