Do you own one?
Chance would be a fine thing!
I've actually seen one or two locked up around town, still in use as everyday rides - one in the Marais, and one up by the Gare de l'Est.
Whats the history on these beautys?
I don't know that much about them, beyond what's to be found on the web. They were built at Bois-Colombes near Paris in the thirties, and reputedly cost three times the price of a Hetchins when a Hetchins was the most expensive bike you could buy in Britain. The marque seems to have survived into the early fifties, then disappeared.
Calmes dans le demi-jour
Que les branches hautes font,
Pénétrons bien notre amour
De ce silence profond.
