Greetings all:

I have been taking my time finishing the NOS Lejeune I acquired and came across what I think would be an anomaly. The rear wheel spacing is 126, not 120 as one might expect on a bike in the early 1970s. Any one with an idea as to how this came to pass? The bike had not been unwrapped until I did so.
