Well, I stumbled onto the most marvelous photo of a bicycle on Jan = Heine's site. It is a chrome or stainless '52 Faure. = http://www.mindspring.com/~heine/bikesite/bikesite/images/faure.jpg It may have the coolest integration of light to fender to something else = (anybody know for sure just what it is?) that's round... several of us = have speculated about it. <snip> -------------

That is, I'd bet $$ to Bayliss Donuts, a cyclometer, perhaps driven off the belt you can vaguely see (larger diameter spool at hub end). Size and shape look a lot like the Huret, but clearly not the Bowden cable drive ("speedometer cable" I'm used to.

wouldn't bet very many donuts, though...
