Hi everyone,

I need to sell a few bikes to free up some space in the basement. The basement and bikes stayed dry during the recent floods.

First is a bit of an absurdity. It's a Jeunet Franche-Comte racing mixte. Just the thing for competing in a kilt. The frame is full 531 DB, blue in color with black lugs. Wheels are Normande Luxe Compe hubs with Mavic Championat du Monde rims and barely ridden Continental Giro sewups. Crankset is a TA Course Legere with blind pedal holes! Derailleurs are Simplex (Criterium, I think, plastic but better than Prestige.) Stem is Pivo with a recessed allen bolt. It looks like a bird that's been intibated. Brakes are usual MAFAC. Pedals are wobbly Lyotards. Freewheel is noisy. This bike would make a nice 650B conversion. $300 + actual shipping.

Next is a Schwinn Sports Tourer experimenter's kit. This has a fillet brazed chrome-moly frame and was the model below the Paramount. Color is yellow with matching bar tape. 27 " wheels are not Schwinn. Campagnolo Gran Turismo boat anchor with the correct attachment for a Huret dropout. No front derailleur. Cheap Nervex alloy crank that need's a helicoil. Two skip-tooth Schwinn Approved freewheels. NOS Brooks B5N saddle. Brakes, bars, stem, and stem shifters are there. The bike is not working; it could be restored to its full Schwinness, or alternatively it could be made into a nice touring bike. $100 + actual shipping

Finally is a red Hypercycle. This is a short wheelbase recumbent from around 1980. It's a lot of fun, but a bit of a deathtrap. This one has the reinforced frame. $100 + actual shipping (may need two boxes).
