There were advertisements in European magazines at the time that said "Bernard Hinault by LeJeune" Of course, that does not answer who built them, just who painted and marketed them. Later on, the Hinault frames seemed to change character quite a bit, so I suspect that another company got the rights to the name.....much in the same way that Eddy Merckx or Coppi frames did...

They rode on "Bernard Hinault" badged frames in 1985 (Greg LeMond's had "Huffy" on his!). In 1986, they rode on Looks, with Reynolds 753. 1984...that is a mystery. I can't make out the name on the tubing....

Who made all of the above? Who knows!?

An y idea who was making these framesets? Saw Hinault at the Worlds in the Springs riding one. I think some were riding Looks but this was made with Reynolds. Thanks..peace
