The only place I ever saw Loiuson Bobet bikes for sale was the Cyclo-Pedia catalogue, when Gene Portuesi ran CycloPedia. The urban legend back then was that the Bobets were just private-labeled Merciers. I cannot vouch for that. If Dale wants, I can send the catalogue pages for posting on the CdO web site -- if they arent' there already.
