I bought this last year. It has put every other steel frame that I've had into a context. The work that has visibly gone into this is impressive.
I'm also happy its all in such good condition. It came with an Ideale Rebour softened saddle but it was too good an opportunity to recoup costs to resist.
This one is also in a box at my parents in law house, awaiting shipment. I will have some brown hoods and decent tape waiting when it arrives :)
Can anyone tell me about the tags on the wheels? I guess they are a wheel builders mark?

yeah, not feeling any younger, but it certainly makes me appreciate things which are older! I'm reasonably sure its a 1972 or so. I'm not sure if Marcel LeJeune made all of the frames under the marque, but I'm really happy with the work in this one. Its a touch under 10kgs as is and climbs very, very well :D

oh, and i forgot to mention I have a NOS 1A 125mm waiting for it here. The XA looks too new to me.
