Supposedly a former French racer emigrated to South Africa and is now making LeJeunes there. Saw some of these a few yeras ago at Boone's Cycles in Houston. Not much like the classic LeJeunes. Very poor paint, it was peeling on the new bikes on display.

> I don't really mean third world; just don't know how to describe the non-major players. This list offers depth of discussion on the major players - UK, France, Italy, U.S.A.... Can anyone offer information on nations, regions we don't immediately associate with lightweight and classic bikes? I was surprised to learn of Crescents. China, for instance - utility bikes, yes, any "classics"? "China-fied" French makes? South America? Baltic states? Heck, what about Canada? Any Brit or French builders emigrate to Canada? South Africa?
