There is a very attractive MERAL Randonneur bike on USA Ebay *Item No 280426213647, but the seller *is* based in France.* ** The bike is equipped with French components as befits such a gallic machine. Size is 54 cms...price currently 316 dollars with about three days for the auction to run.

MERAL was a medium sized company based in the Loire valley. It's range of cycles and frames was impressive to say that they were made in short series, although a custom build was available.

Obviously not of the same high standard as a Singer or Herse, these bikes look typically French..have all the braze-ons for F and R racks etc and ride well
