Oooops, sorry guys :facepalm:

I forgot I had an appointment with a case of beer and the Rolling Stones!

I'm also working a new fitness principle. If you go out for a Sunday ride with a bangin hangover everything is 10 times harder, so you get 10 times fitter :)

Here are some more pics :)

The Yellow Peril, especially with about 1/2" of stem inserted! Nothing spectacular but forged drop outs and nice lugs. Similar to a Gazelle but I'm not so sure?

Interesting you should say that. The seller said it originally came from a french boot sale. I'll google some Jaques Coustarde :)

Following up on the French Connection it bears a lot of similarities to Gitane although I've not found an exact match.

Never use a match with a Gitane always use a lighter!! Matches are for Gauloise.....

And my case is almost packed ...
