Bertin was the importer/distributor for Shimano in France from about 1974 on so they used a lot of those components on their bikes. Bertin shared the Milremo trade name with Ron Kitching in the UK. Kitching was the UK importer/distributor for Suntour.
Bertin stopped producing bikes in the early 90s and concentrated on distributing parts, components and accessories. In 2000 Shimano bought out Bertin and changed the name to Shimano France or something like that.
My 1975 C34 looked like this C37, same colors and so on.
