..I was left with very nice 1977ish Mercier Service des Courses.
And as we all love Raymond Poulidor, I now have the right
bike to take out for a spin, after spending the evening reading
1960'/70's Miroir-Sprint magazines.
I have only taken it out for one run so far, The Simplex SLJ
worked beautifully. Although you would hope so, as this
Gold anodized SLJ wasn't far off the price of the Campagnolo
Record gear at the time.
The Mafac brakes also worked well, although took
a bit of time set up just right.
So I would say, a nice bike overall, not in the same
Nice Maillad 700/AVA wheel set, helped set off
the whole package.
