The lord of the rings was first published in 1954. So I don't think that the french brand of 1930's 'Elvish' bicycles could have been inspried by J.R.R. Tolkein. However, the reverse may have been true !! :-) :-)

There are lies, Dang Lies, and Tarikh's Elvish Pictures in Paris! Here are some REAL elvish pictures from paris !!
