Tickle Me Olmo - c$400

Local getting his flip on. Not a bad price I'd say. Also has a Concorde for sale, same price.

I e-mailed the seller of this bike to check if it is in fact the whole package, everything in the picture. It is indeed all inclusive of what you see. The seller says he has another 720 and a Surly and that it is why this is up for sale. He sounds to me like a serious biker and nice guy, just my opinion. If it was my size I would definitely pursue this bike. It is a beauty.

Yes, I would have been tempted too. But I'm more of a 52 or 54 cm bike size myself. Thankfully. That and I have an '84 620 and '83 720 in the project que already.
I just noticed it's been posted for a month already. He might be willing to negotiate.

Interesting. Looks like an offshoot of the Mercier brand (also of St. Etienne). The badge has the same form as a Mercier badge.

Also, the seller might want to check the badge again- it's "Bobet", not "Bonet"!

Yeah, I imagine it will actually sell for something south of $150. Seller is already lowering the price on CL.

Good deal for the PDX folks. About $200 worth of parts on it including a Phil Wood hub. Cool frame too.

That looks like one of the OU-8s or whatever. Steel everything and cottered crank. $155 is ok if it fits but if it doesn’t or you don’t like it getting your 155 back might be tough.

I looked on Classic Rendezvous, and they point to it maybe being a Stella with this famous racers name on it.
I of course know nothing of it but posted for the French fans.

From Wikipedia:Louison Bobet (company), a line of bicycles produced by french bicycle manufacturer Mercier for French cyclist Louison Bobet following his cycling career.


Mercier (cycling team) history:

Cycles Mercier was the main sponsor of the team from at least 1935[1] on until 1969. From 1946 on, the team wore a purple jersey which in 1950 became the characteristic purple jersey with yellow neck and cuff lining which was to stay with the team until Mercier was no longer the main sponsor of the team in 1969. From 1935[1] to 1955[2] the team had as second sponsor Hutchinson and was the Mercier-Hutchinson team. From 1956[3] the team was known as Mercier-BP-Hutchinson which it would continue as until 1969 [4] after which the sponsor Mercier became the second sponsor of the team. Two time Tour de France champion and 1936 World Champion Antonin Magne finished his career with the Mercier-Hutchinson team in 1941. Around ten years later in 1953, Magne was the main directeur sportif of the team and he would guide the team up until 1970 when the name of the team changed to ***or-Mercier. Magne guided the team during many successful years. Frenchman Louison Bobet was part of the team in 1955 when he won Tour of Flanders but at this time the Tour de France was disputed by national teams so Mercier did not have the opportunity to ride the Tour as a team. Nevertheless, riders of the team won the Tour in 1937 and 1955.

Despite being on the team, it appears that Louison Bobet did not wear the Mercier-BP-Hutchinson jersey but a Bobet-BP-Hutchinson jersey. This happened during several races and was common practice at the time as can be seen with other sponsors names that took the place of Mercier for example- A. Leducq, A,Magne, F.Pelissier, Le Greves and M.Archambaud. Examples of the different jerseys can be found on the French website memoire du cyclisme. In this way Bobet was part of the Magne directed Mercier team but he rode his own mark of racing bicycles – Louison Bobet bicycles and his teams are listed as from 1955 to 1960 as Bobet-BP-Hutchinson.[5]

^^^^ Another example of "rare" not necessarily meaning "worth much". Evidently M. Bobet saw fit to lend his name and likeness to a line of bike-boom-quality bikes with steel rims, cottered cranks and derailleurs approximately the size of a Fiat 500.
