I remember that lock fr9m some years ago......
The flat strap loop is made of Titanium, which, I guess, explains its high price, but I was never sure how resistant it was to cutting.

Where was that? Latin quarter? I always loved seeing all the beautiful bikes there. Seeing a student navigate the Rue Mouffetard cobbles on a Vitus 979 partly inspired me to buy one.

It's a Peugeot-Donnay PC1000D (1993) in its natural habitat, I think the fork is a stranger..
