First bike was an Eddy Mercxx 1970 road bike - rode it from NYC to the Olympic peninsula in 1974.

After that I got a Frejus.

Both were stolen. Found the Frejus awhile later underneath some kid riding down the street.
He "fell off" and I got my bike back.

I'm thinking of replacing the LeJeune with another vintage 70s or 80s road bike - maybe something Italian this time. Masi, Colnago, something nice.
There is nothing like a well taken care of vintage bike! My dad still has one I'll eventually restore and ride again from time to time (he rode it during his teens/20s.) That being said, you should give a new one a try if you can. Switching from steel to aluminum was quite an eye opener for me once I had to get up my first hill. It's nice not having to drag all that steel up.
