We can talk the old talk (1930 to 1980). We ,(@10 certified freaks) will hang and talk bikes for @ 2 hours. Subject for the evenings discussion and show and tell will be "French touring bicycles of the 1940's 50's and 60's. A recent acquisition, a fully original 1951 Raymond Valance full touring cycle will be on view. Msr. Valance was the Peugeot team mechanic for 22 years, served on 18 Tour De France teams, and built the frames used by Bernard Thevenet for his 1975 and 1977 tour victories. This bike came with full documentation including order and build sheets. Quite a treasure! Emphasis of the evenings discussion will center on restoration/ renovation philosophies and their application . The N.Y.Times and Enquirer are vying for the photo rights. Bring interesting printed matter, pictures, parts, and weird French stuff for show and tell. Also, my laptop will provide jpegs of various other French jewels.
