Though perhaps not the best well known of the French builders, LeJeune were a small but high quality outfit producing bikes for Tour winners and discerning amateur customers alike. Out of their factory in Paris, LeJeune also mass-produced road and city bikes from the 1950s into the 1980s. The LeJeune branded bikes ridden by the professional teams or for custom orders were often built by the famed constructeur Bernard Carre to a very high quality.

If you're taking part in L'Eroica or any other vintage event, this frame is of the correct age, so you won't be disqualified for being a rule breaker!

The frame's been carefully checked by one of our mechanics to confirm the alignment's correct and there's no damage to the threads. If there are any minor issues worth noting we will do so in the overview section below. Please take a good look at the detailed photos so you can see the cosmetic condition of the frame before you buy.
