Follis apparently built some rando bikes back when - one of the drawings in the Data Book has a bike with what appears to my eye to be a Follis headbadge.

A gentleman named Scott rides one here in the Greenwood area. His has been repainted a couple of times, the original fork was trashed in a crash, the bottom bracket shell broke - but he likes it enough that he took it to Mary Pfeiffer for a new BB shell, some braze-on updates and a paint job. The bike was one that was originally full Campy, full 531 tubing.

Scott's also our fastest guy - he rode the Savannah Century last year on that bike, turning in 4:07. I'm glad he did - I like reminding our modernist wing that they got beat by a guy on a 25-year-old French bike with friction shifting ...
