Intriguing '50's lugless number. I would have thought it was a CB but for the seat cluster and pump peg. £15 quid start, 22hrs to go and pick up from Cambridge:
This a lovely looking little '70's LeJuene with a classic Stronglight 49D crankset and beautiful chrome fork-ends:
I've got a 1995 model, but mine is a lugged & brazed 501 frame in an understated deep red/purple finish. It's my favourite bike by a large margin. I think that frame is probably a 21", mine is a 23" and has a taller head tube than the one on eBay. Unfortunately, Pioneers seemed much more popular with the ladies as their frames seem to outnumber the gents versions by a factor of two or three to one. Often, a perfectly usable ladies Pioneer will struggle to make £20!
