Excellent link, the Velo d'Auto, the yellow bike, 2nd time lately but only on the internet I see the bulge on the lower bicycle chain http://velosvintage2.ultim-blog.com/ . Ok, and I had read something about that starting story with the Velo D'Auto: something about back then they had competing sponsors at the original tour, something like that. I've seen the rider down the page on one of those links too before, I like how they rode with inner tubes on their shoulders back then like carrying bandoliers.

Takes a while to download but worth it.

Yellow Steel Bicycles I think look magnificent.

I think it has been posted before but no problem, it's well worth looking at again. There's some very interesting bikes on there. The owner must have an extremely large shed!

I like the original paintwork. Refinishing just seems wrong to me (I don't mind touch up spots though)
