hello ! im mark p obrien.i have Two French DILECTA LE BLANC touring bikes, c 1960. Stored indoors for twelve years. Light surface rust on tandem. Made for man 5'9" tall, they have matching paint, etc., . Would not take much to put them in touring shape! Reynolds 531 frames, 15 speeds. Racks. Leather seats (Ideale and Brooks) on tandem; more modern split seat on single. i plan to restore and use them! i plan to research the history of them, and get many opinions as to what needs to be done to them.i filled the tires on the tandem and took it for a ride everything works!!!!! the single doesnt have tubes and i couldnt fill the tires.will take pictures and include on next post. thank you! mark!!!
