Gents:

Concorde was a Dutch brand, and made at various times by various sub contractors. In the peak years (from our perspective) the bikes were made by Giovanni Pelizzoli of Coicc fame. But I think it would be incorrect to place it as an Italian marque because there also were Japanese made Concorde models, etc....

Please correct me if any of you have additional info..

Ray, My undertanding from friends in Belgium was that Concorde was imported from Italy to Belgium and was not of Belgian manufacture. Edward Albert Chappaqua, NY, USA

I know that they were used by the PDM team out of Holland but that means nothing. After all Jan Raas's teams have ridden Colnago for decades. Is it significant that the example shown has green, white and red flashes in a number of places? Can the experts help. Ray Green Harrow Middlesex
