    Mercier Info?

    Another member in my area posted this:

    Have Mercier on My Soul

    I'm due to pick up the bike this weekend. With the leather saddle and chrome fork it looks interesting. Does anyone have a Mercier or information on them? It seems there is very little on the Internet compared to Peugeot or Motobecane.

    Thanks.

    See my Hyperlite 411 it's the photo model on OutRiderUSA web page

    well you're right, there's not a lot of info...you probably saw what CR has:
    http://www.classicrendezvous.com/Fra...rcier_main.htm
    and if you search the archives (search.bikelist.org) you can find more chatter, but most is concerning the flagship model 300, which was Mercier's answer to the PX-10 and Gitane TdF. You find much more from these French makers (as well as Moto and Follis, even Stella) cause they sold more over a larger area in the States.
    Coincidentally, there's a seller in Berkeley,CA who has a "his'n'hers" pair of Mercier 300s currently for sale on CL. The small "her's" is stripped and chrome-plated, around 52cm, and the "his" has original paint, around 56cm, both seem to be equipt with mostly original stuff, or period replacements, and reasonably priced too.
