Cruisin' on my Bluebird

this is the Pepita model Nr. 320

one odd threading specification to be aware of:

while all of the tubing and the headset are of BSC dimension the frame's bottom bracket shell is metric ("french") dimension

the OEM saddle would have been a Tron et Berthet (Ideale) model Nr. 90 in black with a steel frame

interesting to see that the machine wears a Zeus pump holder cup. if it came from the factory with one it is likely to have been a REG (Rampinelli) brand.

certainly the bike is heavily modified as is normal with a live-with bike.
The saddle is a likely choice for a woman rider, as is the frame size.

Beautiful bike. Would you mind posting a serial number? I have two models, a 320 and a 317 I believe. I am trying to gather more information and serial numbers to more closely date these wonderful machines. Thanks Kevin

Given the similarity to the U.S. TOC Crescent badges I always wondered if their was a linkage between the two? V/r Shawn

These pics were taken after picking up at the Portland swap last summer and before a clean up. I will try to get some more pics of this one and my other to help with any comparisons.
