I saw a bike today called a Paris Champion du Monde.

The guy that owned it, told me it had been built in the mid 1980s by a company which has since become Condor bikes ? He said it was built by Tom Board ?

What will the frame material be for this bike - Reynolds tubing or something else ?

I've never heard of Paris - are they good ? It looked a nice bike - it was a flame red colour.

Read all about Paris here:

Their most famous model was the Galibier, which Condor have reissued in the last year or two:

I don't know for certain, but I assume the '80s Paris bikes were Reynolds tubed.
