Circa 2002 there was a pink Mercier offered on Ebay and I recently re-located the photos that I had kept. I have added them to a previously posted album showing another pink Mercier.
Here is a link to the album: http://www.wooljersey.com/gallery/bc_stockwell_bikestuff/pink-mercier/
As I recall, the auction text said "this bike was almost certainly ridden in the Tour de France". Well, it certainly looks the business.
Not sure about the year; the frame is modern enough to have 753 tubes and early enough that someone bothered to drill the dropouts. I can't be sure from the hazy images but it appears to have brazed-in brake bolts, and "just two" top-tube brake-cable guides.
The parts are a mixed bag, but I love the dimpling on the brake calipers. I would have shoveled great brimming pots of cash on this one, if it had been big enough for a full-growed country lad!
