40s pedals - Lyotard 240

Seller's pictures and need a little bit of a clean -

Going by the frame number I would guess that it was built in 1947.
I have a very original “Club” model from 1948 and my lug work is much simpler and pre-war in style than your frame – so it is a more up-market frame than the “Club”model – I have no data to be able to fully identify different models, as the pictures in their catalogues are not of close enough detail to be able to see the lug work.
All that I can say is that it could be their “Touring” model or may be an version of their “Super “ frame.
As most frames were built to order there would have been a lot of variation in the choice of parts in the build.
