Can anyone really truly verify where the Paris sport bikes were made or by who...and don't tell me the info was supplied by Frayse who imported them because I knew him and once in a great while you can actually believe some of the things he says....but only once in awhile!
This same bike is offered on Craig's list for $1000.

I have no idea whether this bike was really made by Cuevas. I didn't know that Paris Sport was in operation in 1968, but Francisco Cuevas reportedly helped Fraysee set the operation up. I thought the timing was more like 1970. The description of the wheels: "Gold Mavic Record Du Monde De L' Heure 700cc Rims on Gold High Flange Pellissier Hubs, Insanely Rare. Pellissier quick releases." and the pedals, "Iberia Cursa petals with Paturaud toe clips" make this interesting. Are the hubs really that rare? Lou Deeter, Orlando FL
