I purchased this 75-80 road bike (my first), for about $80. Being in a bad shape and no decals… I want to restore and enjoy it.
Been trying to ID it several days now in order to start a restoration project and know exactly how to do it.
The frame looks french, components are Mafac Racer, Simplex derailleurs, Millard M M Atom quick release, Normandy hubs, Belleri handle bar, etc.
Here is a link to a forum I'm active and where there a re lots of details and observations about this bike - https://www.bikeforums.net/classic-vintage-bicycles-whats-worth-appraisals/1175248-can-you-help-me-id-ing-bike.html
For now, it appears that this frame belongs to a manufacturer called Liberia of Grenoble. Still, I'm not ruling out others like Motobecane, Gitane or St Etienne.
Can you guys help me ID it?
