I just bought this bike, https://imgur.com/a/vGc5C , I paid 100 euros for it, the guy who I took it from took it as a project and cleaned everything up so I'm happy with how it runs. However, I can not find what model the bike is. Can anyone help me with that ?

Also, I would like to put some brake lever hoods on it, but I am not sure that there is anything to fit these types of levers. What are your thoughts ?

Cheers

    Any markings indicating Reynolds, for example?

    I'd imagine it's a PR10 or a U08

    there is nothing on the frame except this https://imgur.com/a/KGjE5 , which upon searching didn't give any result so I figure it's a marking to keep track of production or something like that

    But isn't that a Reynolds sticker on the seat tube?

    Early 60s I reckon judging by the frame angles / fork rake - if you search Velobase you can probably find the year for the Simplex parts - front mech looks similar to an LJ23 from 1961-63 and Prestige Criterium rear mech. I sold a load of NOS similar Simplex stuff a few years ago. Judging by the lack of named-tubing, quality of parts, pressed not forged drop-outs and frame fittings this is a mid-range, St Etienne's finest mass-produced product, not a high-end model like a PR10
    Make mine an Italian, with Campagnolo on the side..
