This lovely compact, lightweight French made frameset sports the name of a bike shop from the Colombelles area of France. With French threaded headset and bottom bracket and weighing in at just over 2.1 kgs for the frame and fork it is likely to be made of a high end tube set, possibly from Vitus, as the thin-wall butted tubing and 26.8 seat post size backs this up. With a multi-coloured and black paintjob that screams 1980s this is sure to make a wonderful bike once built.

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.
