A friend handed me this frame and fork and said: "It's French, good luck!". So I brought it home thinkin' it's a beautiful frame in great shape for being my age. My wife took one look at it and said: "Is that my bike that you are planning to build?" Uhmm, well, uhh, yes, that's right, I brought it home for you. Notice she even got my favorite seat! I procured a '70's brown brooks saddle for her but she liked the black one more. I like the brown one, and anyway, I'm much happier when Lady Firebelly is happy It's '70's Motobecane Nomad w/ 27" wheels.
