LOOKS LIKE ITS HAPPENING!................As like I have been thinking and saying all along, it's only a matter of time before the French discovers what they have laying around! The first strike and taste of fresh blood must be...tasting...mighty...fine! So with the new flow of tasty goods hitting the market, I'm now wondering where will the prices go?? Will they stabilize,..................or continue heading north! Check out the seller, he's new and tasting blood early.

He said the Herse shop switched to decals in their last years and that the bike has been repainted there. Don't know if this true, but since I could't find a single Herse part at the pics I hesitated to bid. Can anybody confirm the "Herse used decals" story?
