Interested, pending price. Rear derailleur and shifter/hardware, freewheel, and spoke protector are not original to the bike.

Sorry I did not include price. Person who traded it to me said it's all original except Simplex rear derailleur. The spoke protector was added if one wanted it and he said the shifter/hardware is correct.
Please show me otherwise.

Original freewheel is a J Moyne, looks like an early 70s schwinn approved
Original shifter is Simplex, looks like a long late 60s early 70s huret lever on there with similar hardware.
Rear derailleur is an early huret allvit or a simplex, that's a late 60s early 70s allvit on there.
Saddle is also wrong, should be an ideal 43.
No spoke protector came on any of the original 60s I've seen, yours looks to have a huret one that's had the plastic broken off to imitate one of these

Still a beautiful example of these bikes which are among my favorites. Just not an all original example as noted.

Thanks,
Although not completely original, those are pieces that would've been replaced over the years...
The spoke protector probably was added. It's still a very nice example of a 57 year old bike.

Very nice frame and decals. Brake hoods and quick release front axle are additions. Wonder where the original freewheel went (and why) on a nice bike like this. 15-25 Atom freewheels don't grow on trees. Hope you don't part it out.

Did I read above you taking offers?

I',m glad I don't have lots of money, I'd be buying bikes like this so they don't get parted out, then at my estate sale a bunch of guys would buy them to part them out.
