Hi folks

I'm currently contemplating buying a frameset, but the front mech appears to be mounted by a bolt straight into the frame, and not the conventional braze on or band on mount.
Has anyone heard of this, or know what mechs would work?

The frame is a mid '80s model,

Thanks,

Mike

Is it a French frame by any chance :?: :?:

Funny you say that, yes!

Called French fitting according to Velobase.

Now need to find one!

Thanks mate,

I've now seen two Simplex mechs that would be suitable. Asked the seller if he has the original one.

Fingers crossed.

That's a new one to me, not knowingly seen it before.

Every day is a school day :)
