Anyone heard of this? I pulled one of these out of the trash a while back and have built it up as a fixie. Based on the stickers that were slapped on it, it appears to date from about 1975. It is your basic steel lugged frame, not too terribly unlike a mass-produced Motobecane or Gitane of the same vintage. The bottom bracket, however, is English threaded, so I'd guess that it didn't come from France. The geometry is strictly touring bike, and it rides very nicely. Any background information would be nice...
