"U08/"Trophée de France", early to mid 60s I think. Maybe the first style UO8 type model." That is what I was told on this site this bike was when I asked for help on here under the Lightweight Bikes forum. I will leave that thread up so people can read the helpful comments people made about this bike and value of bike which I recommend any prospective buyer find that post and read through it. LOCAL PICKUP ONLY FROM ME IN SAN JOSE, CA. I do not ship bikes, and a lower priced bike like this one could cost more to ship than what you might be paying for it anyway. Rides and stops well, nice looking seat that says Ideal on the seat, maybe original seat. Wheels are real nice but stamped made in Japan, tires look like new and not original. Suntour rear derailleur but maybe not original. I have some wingnuts that I was told came on this bike, that are included. Local pickup only, thanks.
