Carraro & Elvish....

Recent acquisitions: Another green 21 inch Elvish and a bright red barely broken in 23 inch Carraro. My wife has recently dragged home TWO of these green French Elvish bikes, both too small for me but will fit the kids. Solid French fare: Simplex, Solida, DEA Superchromix & Mafac. Leather VERYBEST saddle.

The bigger Italian Carraro still has the original Pirelli tyres, Maccari Turin rims and Regina Extra freewheel on it and appears to be more a victim of benign neglect than abuse. Nice low-end Simplex and Universal brakes.

Any idea of how old these bikes are, approximate cost when new ??
