Sturdy vintage steel runaround - £125

    I've had this bike for a while, selling because i just don't use it much and don't really have the space for excess bikes
    i think the frame is French, from the 60s or 70s? it has very nice lugs and is pretty light for something that old. The fork is an old raleigh fork that i had lying around when i built it up. It matches the frame quite nicely and rides well. I just put in a new shimano 600 headset which is smooth as anything.
    Component wise this is pretty basic but very solid.

    Looking for £125 ovno
    I'm sure i payed more for this when i built it up, but i'm not too fussed about getting my money back, just need the space and some funds to cover till the next paycheck.
    Thank for looking
