    Ahh drag, I didn't actually know they had different versions of the arabesque set. I actually had the older version as below, so probably want to match that if I go this route. Thanks for posting anyhow! The hunt continues.

    Looking for a rear Shimano 600 (arabesque version) derailleur.
    I recently had to switch rear wheels on my bike and completely forgot to adjust the derailleur, then tried to shift and the whole thing EXPLODED.

    The rest of the bike has an arabesque 600 group, so I wanted to keep it all harmonious. Anyone have one?

    I'm making room for the rest of my life this summer—finally coming to the realisation that I am not ever going to need 8 projects on the go at once. There are a lot more to come, but to start:

    LeJeune circa 1960s SOLD
    Size:ST: C2C 57.5cm, TT: C2C 57.5cm
    Thread: French 35 x 1
    OLD: 120mm
    Wheels: 700
    Condition: Pretty nice for it's age!
    Dropouts: Campagnolo (both), horizontal rear
    Tubing: unknown, but likely 3 tubes reynolds (I can see a what looks to be tiny scratches where the reynolds sticker normally is as if it were rubbed off; many LeJeune's, including my last daily rider, was Reynolds).
    Price:£100 ono, dibs + pm
    Comes with BB (half Campagnolo, half Stronglight) and headset Campagnolo—all nice and smooth rolling. I don't have the original spec on this bike, but I remember reading that new, these were built up with a combination of Campagnolo Nuovo Record and Stronglight components (so what's on there is likely the period stuff).






    35 x 1 Mystery frame: "M. Veuble"SOLD
    Size:ST: C2C 54cm, TT: C2C 54.5cm
    Thread: French 35 x 1
    OLD: 120mm
    Wheels: 700
    Condition: Also pretty nice for it's age (probably mid-70s).
    Dropouts: Campagnolo (both), horizontal rear
    Tubing: unknown, but likely just straight gauge. The dropouts are nice, but the workmanship isn't that of Ernest Csuka. I bought it off eBay France about 5 years ago and it's just been sitting with me ever since.
    Price:£30 ono, dibs + pm

    Hi all,

    I'm looking for a set of 700c wheels to throw on my new beautiful 70's Lapierre (preferably with a SS or flip flop hub).

    The bike has 126mm rear dropout spacing and ideally, I am looking for something that matches the bike / era. So anything Mavic, Super Champion, etc (clincher only pls).

    I'd love to pick up / meet up in East London if poss, but shipping is cool too.

    Hit me if your holdin!
