Small MAFAC tool bag

I posted this a long time ago, just re-discovered it in my humble stash.
Has small tools and a small "Vulcanizing" kit!

No sir, it would have been even cooler if it did. The second pic is the back, first and third pics are the front. So my guess would be it mounts on the rails. I think it would look just as good mounted to the saddle loops with two black leather toe straps!

EDIT: Scratch that idea, just tried it, bag is to small.

Yeah. I remember my '72 also had one. I see you still have your bike. Wish I did. >: The Velox tire kit was also de' rigueur. Have a couple of those left.

Very similiar, the tools in my kit are wrapped in what appears to be wax paper with a thin coating of grease, and the tools are not rusty. ;0) The tire kit is a paper pouch (not a plastic container) with the words "Autovulcanisantes, Special Dissoplast Constructeur, A la chaleur Degagee en Roulant, Pour cycles et Cyclomoteurs" and a bunch of other stuff, to much to type. I think its older than 72, but I might be wrong.

The chapstick is there for a rough idea of the bags size. I think Im going to put the bag in the saddle bag thats going on my 65 Super Sport, just for ****s and giggles. Unless someone has something similiar to it for a 65 Schwinn, then we can trade.

I have an even older one in a metal tin. Not sure I'd like to rely on any of those tools.

Mine came with my 1983 Gitane tandem. I also have a red REG (Italy) version I bought with my first derailleur bike, back in the mid-70s. Tool quality is essentially the same: simple stamped wrenches.

I had a gitane version that was vinyl but gave it away. I also had the same Mafac pouch with all the original wrenches and that is gone now too. I actually use one of these with modern supplies including a flat michelin tire lever that I like and it is in my messenger bag at all times. I think I have been using it for over 5 years now. IMHP, the little straps are to insubstantial for me to trust strapping it to my seat or anywhere else.

I have one too without the tire repair kit. Think I got it with the Peugoet I bought in '69. No Mafac brakes so don't know what I will do with it..... trade for a Campy SR seat post in 27.2?! LOL

I still have the tools but the bag is long gone, and I dont want to think about how many miles of "Fil de Lin" I've gone through....

I have one that I bought new from a bike shop in the late 70s. I forget if it came with anything beyond what's shown.

Are you planning to pass out MAFAC tyre levers and spanners in place of the new Canuck polymer $50 and $20 notes?
