Subject: [CR]Faure bicycle...anybody know about this maker?

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. Checking the archives, I find only the Faure Autocar, and it seems nothing like this. I have asked a couple of the most knowledgeable folks I know and the bike is a new one on them, too. Could Mr. Heine or some other knowledgeable soul, fill us in on this wonderful bike? One buddy says he thinks Faure may have been a French watch maker.
