Hi guys,

Just bought an Emmelle Prestige road bike of eBay and wondered if anyone could tell me anything about it? I thinks it's circa early 80's as it's on 27" wheels not 700's, but other than that I know nothing about it!

Cheers,

Mike

Emmelle was the house brand of Moore-Large distributors (Hence M-L )

In all honestly they were almost all pretty low end bikes made from thick seamed steel tubing.

Would maybe make a nice town bike or fixie/SS but not a performance bike :-(
