Thought I would point this rare Paris Galibier out to the list. The frame still appears to be in its original paint and has the seat clamp fitted a'la "The London-Italian R.C." fashion. Who remembers this very flashy club who brightened up very drab British Sunday Winter mornings? The forks on the Paris have the later "du Monde" style fork crown and its my guess that this is possibly one of the very last Galibiers made. Very interesting frame well worth having a bid on but whats with the description PARIS GALIBIER FRAME SET C 1950 HETCHINS? What has Hetchins got do with Paris, peculiar item title. Happy bidding and I hope its back out on the lanes soon.

Thats all for now. Keep those wheels spinning, in your memories if not still on the road. Be lucky Mick Butler Huntingdon UK.
