OK Norris lets hear from you. It seems to me that all the bikes ridden in the TDF up to at least the late 40s POSSIBLY made by the same company, I would think (and at my age this is difficult) that it would have been a FRENCH concern, Norris our resident FRENCH bike expert. what company was this? Mercier possibly? Are any of these bikes left anyone on the list have one? It seems that you can't judge a book by its cover or some such, ref to Colins posts. Of course a handbuilt bike I would expect to be better than a massed produced one, Raleighs made by whom? Peugeots made by ???? Cinellis it goes on and on. Is the converted Hetchins, Bates Rotrax Claud etc you have GENUINE? makes you wonder! Cheers John Crump OldandgenuineBrit. Parker. Co USA
