I was trying to decide if it was worth the trouble to change the handle bars on 1984 trek 420 girls bike. Well I found a used bike today at a pawn shop in Orlando that covers my needs.
The bike I found is a PARIS-SPORT 5 speed girls bike and it was made by Victor Cycles of Paris France. They were asking $79 and I got them down to $60. I have never heard of this brand and It looks new, but the parts are similar to my other early 80s road bikes. Wheels are chrome steel Samid-Saminox (france) and they look brand new. It has a fairly new seat and tires (non-original). Kick-stand is broken and front fender is missing. Rides and shifts like a new bike. Valstar tubes/Starnord.
The weird thing is, it says "made in france" all over it but most of the writing is in English. Original bike shop sticker says Long Branch NJ.
Any help would be great. I know the value is probably low being a 5 speed girls bike, but condition and price made it hard to pass up.
