That is quite edifying Mr Sheldon Brown: I have a stock of NOS 1950's hose clips I'm willing to let go for a price to the buyer of any GR. In fact, once the buyer has removed the caminargent stem, the crankset and the uncracked rim (one of 'em is badly split I see on the pics) and maybe the rear derailleur, I am willing to purchase the frame for 20 euros. Better still, if anybody purchases that bike for parts and wants it stripped, much as I disprove with the act in theory , I might accept to have the bike shipped to me for dissasembly and reshipping the parts, my price being the frame and bars. I would like to try some fancy cutouts on the hoseclips and see what the result is. Probably better than a take-apart Herse.

ps: truly beautiful beautiful photo of the bike against that milestone your link leads to.

Oooh, I had a gent's one of these when I lived in France, made it into a sort of mountain bike...
It was made with aluminum tubes in the main triangle, held into steel lugs by rivets. Not a great design. On mine the joints at the head tube were scary loose, and I bodged together a setup using hose clamps to help hold it together.
