This is a Fontan 10 speed touring bicycle (Made in France) from the 70s. The frame is lugged steel but the decal noting the type of tubing is un-readable. The frame size is 24 inches (approximately 62cm) and should fit riders 6'2 and taller. The standover height is 35 inches. The bike is equipped with Huret downtube shifters and derailleurs, wheels are 27X1 1/4 rims with large flange Mallard quick release hubs and new 217X1 1/4 tires, Sugino aluminum cotterless crankset, aluminum Mallard pedals with toe clips, threadless stem adapter and stem, aluminum engraved center portion handlebars, Dura Ace drilled brake levers with hoods, Mafac Racer brakes with quick releases, aluminum seatpost, Vetta Tri TT shock saddle, new chrome chain, front and rear aluminum touring racks, front and rear road lights with generator and a kickstand. I replaced the original steel cottered crankset with the aluminum Sugino cotterless crankset, replaced the shifter and brake cables and housing and installed new handlebar tape. The bike is a bright red with coordinating Fontan decals and in excellent condition. The bike steers, brakes and shifts properly and the wheels are straight and spin freely. You will not be disappointed in this bike. The bike can be delivered in the Chicagoland area for a $10.00 delivery fee.
