Subject: [CR]CMP classic alloy framed bike on French Ebay

I should be in bed by now but I guess that it's early morning in some parts of the States so there is a chance that someone might read this email

Item 7243625061 is a lady's CMP (made by a small company just outside Lyon) alloy framed road bike. The CMP arose out of the "Duravia" marque and predated Vitus Duralinox by a short margin. The lugs were later used by TVT for their range of frames. The frame dates within the CR timescale....and is VERY rare. I already have a gents version of this frame finished in dark ink blue..and I once tried to buy the company...TRUE!...and would buy this bike for my wife but she doesn't ride bikes..just horses...and I cannot afford the luxury of devoting space in my collection to lady's bikes.

I shall be passing right through the little village of Condrieu where the seller lives in about a month's time on my way to getting ready to see the Tour-d-France, and when I shall make a fool of myself trying to get up Alpe d'Huez without being absolutely jiggered. So if anyone wants to have a bid..win the machine i will gladly bring it back to the UK and send it on to you. There is a possibility of having it taken back from France to the States..Seattle, because several friends from that city will be joining me down at Montelimar and then the Alps.
