    thanks for your welcome,i was just wondering if i had offended the community,not introducing myself at the beginning,as apparently is usual on the forum.
    i'm french and like cycling,although i'm afraid i haven't got enough money to ride a bike, other than a cheap vtt : topbike;it last 3 years,but i buy them for 100 euros in france:130 dollars.
    i could make the math,and realize if i pay more,it could last more,alas,in my region,the mediterranean,a bike like that ,don't last even a month when attached outside.
    Concerning the vintage bike,it seems to be dutch or english (something similar to a raleigh-superbe?)
    the film is a french serial:maigret(from simenon);it's looking at it that my friend couldn't believe her eyes,seeing the bike she dreamt of ,since the 50';but it was impossible for me to pinpoint exactly the true one;the raleigh being the closer.
    it would be a great present for her to find it;so if s.o. could tell us it would be awesome.
    thanks,alain.

    No need for a complete introduction, but it's always interesting to hear about people's backgrounds.

    I'd post your questions about your friend's bike in this forum: http://www.bikeforums.net/forumdispl...ic-amp-Vintage. Visitors to that forum are experts on vintage bikes.

    The forum you posted in is only introductions.
