> I spoke with Mike Fraysee approximately 2 years ago, who confirmed that my Paris-Sport is an Orero frame. The words "H France" are pressed into the top of the seat stays. I asked M. Fraysse about this and he indicated that it was an abreviation for Himonese (sp?) France, a place that had some connection to Ramon Orero....

This shows why it is so hard to identify used bicycles. When I built the database for the Used Bike Buyers Guide, I often included information about makes where the only source of information I had was from an engraved seatstay cap, a headbadge, or a downtube decal. In the case of my entry for France, H:, I show this as Argentina!!! No wonder this is so much fun.....Lou Deeter, Orlando FL
