the picts are of mine, of 1952 vintage. link below still available.
Only decals on seattube. I am still acquiring the parts for mine. Expect to have it on the road by spring. Only relatively obscure part I still need is a Simplex T de F derailler and braze-on shifter mechanism.
best of luck! be sure to post jpegs (before and after).
> I have a 1964--according to Mark Stevens, British Gillot owner and CR
\r?\n> member--Gillot touring bike. As I am preparing to head to the North Country of
\r?\n> Minnesota to celebrate my mother's ninetieth birthday (never rode a bike in her
\r?\n> life and doesn't plan on starting now, she says), I decided that I would bring
\r?\n> the Gillot along and have Chris Kvale paint it.
\r?\n> I checked Lloyds for decals. I cannot determine which decals would be
\r?\n> appropriate for the particular bike that I have. Does anyone know which set
\r?\n> would be appropriate? I noticed on two of the Gillots posted on the CR site,
\r?\n> that they have what appears to be two badges, one on the headtube (I have that
\r?\n> one) and the other in the middle of seattube (a la Giradengo's). Does anyone
\r?\n> know if the one on the seattube is a decal or is it an actual badge? And one
\r?\n> more question: recently, either on this list, someone posted a link to a blue
\r?\n> and orange Gillot that had a color scheme very much like the Holdsworth Pros.
\r?\n> Does anyone still have that link?
\r?\n> Thank you very much.
