A pink Mercier, maybe 70s, with Mafac Racer centrepulls, Simplex front changer, Ideale saddle.

It seems the forum resizes the pics, click on copy and paste the link for full size.

Condor Paris bike, I think the "Path" model, anyway it's a modern conventional frame except for partial "bi-lam" lugs/sleeves on the head tube, not the funny Galibier model which is what Paris frames are known for.

£1,300 for an Italian built off the peg frame (fixed geometry in 3cm frame size increments)!

Massive drops! Nice though.

Quite enjoying your thread. I’m guessing you live somewhere exotic: I wouldn’t see that many noteworthy bikes in a month of Sundays.
