Map of French cycling brands.

Derosa classic is at it again, this time with a map of French brands.

The threading is incompatible with what I have. I can't buy one.

you're right! that should be in the group with Gitane and Hinault, etc. pointed to Nantes, since:
"21 Chaussée de la Madeleine, Nantes, France."
Tell DeRosa classics he'll need a re-printing run

Probably worth messaging him - as it's not for sale on ebay yet, possibly it hasn't gone to the printers.

It will most likely pop up here when it's ready: https://www.ebay.com.au/usr/andrea.bonfanti

(At least, that's where the Italian one was.)

Thanks, I'll check regularly. And then again later for the UK map, and the Japan one ( )... I missed out on Italy so no "complete set" for me.

The seller is based in Italy, here is a link to his eBay sellers page. I don't believe the French map is available yet, but if you go to his page, then click "items for sale" and then "save this search" then I think you will be notified when the next item becomes available.

Sort of a duplication but Manufrance was a major bicycle producer located in Saint Ètienne. They also marketed in France under the Hirondelle brand which is listed on the map.

Manufrance was one of several French makers that contract built for many other marques, especially lower priced models during the early 70's bike boom era.

T-Mar knows the other ones.

I want one of these.

It's A OK with me if the map is imperfect since that pretty much describes every French bike I've ever owned, .

WOW... Some of these logos I did not even know were French... Ha...

I know of many, many people who would like a large poster like this one and the other of Italian logos. One of the cardiologists over in Austin has a wall size terrain map of an early 1900s Tour De France. If there are eight people in the waiting room at lest one or two are at the map. Oddly some don't even ride bicycles...

I thought it was missing Routens until I looked closer. That's a very cool poster!

not seeing either, but cannot read the text (legend) which might have notes explaining the apparent omissions.
