Listing for an interesting and very rare vintage Jan Janssen 'Super Prestige' Gents road/racing/touring bike in good condition for age and fully working - from the mid 70s I believe...
Jan Janssen won the Tour de France in 1968 and after he retired in 1972 he started a bike company and this bike is an early 'signature' bike in the same style as the contemporary Eddy Merckx bikes etc...

The bike is specced with 27" wheels (slight rust on chrome rims), Alloy Hubs, Older but Usable Amber-Wall Road Tyres, PIVO Alloy Quill Stem, Nice Alloy PIVO Etched Drop Handlebars, Black PVC Bar Tape, Alloy Shimano Tourney Centre-Pull Brake Calipers & Levers (hoods have start to disintegrate!), 10 speed Early Shimano 600 Gears & Down-tube Shifters, SR Apex Double Crankset, Chrome Ratrap Pedals, Original Padded Saddle etc...

The Med/Large size 23.5" frame seems reasonable quality and built in light but strong steel tubing and finished in it's original Metallic Silver Paint and original 'Jan Janssen' Graphics. Some scratches and rust marks from use, age and storage etc but still fairly clean looking on the whole!

To sum up, a nice classic well built rare 70's vintage road bike to use as is and eligible for all pre-87 vintage bike events such as L'Eroica (in UK this year)...

Local collection please and cash on collection preferred also please. Based near Eastleigh, Hampshire. (1 hour south from Waterloo on the train)

Whilst I do not send bikes, if you wanted a courier company to pick it up (at your own cost and risk and no returns), there is a courier company who pick bikes up as they are and deliver in a van with an average transit time of 7-10 days. I do not have the time to box or wrap so the bikes are delivered as-is so you must be happy with this before arranging this service.

Please collect and pay in cash within 7 days of auction ending. For Couriers - Paypal Only Please before the bike is released.
