1970s JEUNET 650B Converted City Bike

70s Jeunet with Grand Bois Extra Light Tires, Grand Bois rims and Grand Bois "Mafac Raidish" brakes.   Rims were laced to 1950s Campagnolo Gran Sport 3-piece hubs.  Wheels roll like they're in Perpetual Motion!
Ball-shaped brake cable yokes are a refined alloy version of orginal Mafac Top 63.  Cable is fastened with an allen bolt behind the ball.  Ball has 2 hidden flats to hold in place with 10 mm open end wrench.

Unfortunately, the bike was totaled when hit by a pickup truck!
