    1940s French Touring Frame

    I posted this up in ebay finds but I think it cool enough to warrant a thread. It's no Rene herse but it is very cool and only EUR 100 ($140) with 16 hours left in bidding. (No relation to seller)

    Just for info the cyclo derailer hanger is the pre-war type.The square shaped cut-out above the derailer hole was changed to a "C" shape cut-out for post war.

    I saw that, and even though I'm in the market for a randonneuring bike in about that size, I passed. It is very cool, but as I'm looking for functional, I'll keep looking.
