Not too bad, I stumbled upon it while looking for info on a French marque. g-tran will go quite a way in decoding the pages.
My French is school kid level and decades out of any classroom, but it is interesting to read the posts.
I'm sure I miss much humor, so it goes.
Never got the urge to attempt to post anything yet.

If I was looking at pictures on French forums it probably wouldn't be to learn French.

Thanks for postuing the link!
Just joined into their forum. Made a mistake signing in as a minor, so had to re-do my registration as "Chombin"... Now I know what the first question in the registration form meant....
Hope they will be kind to American members with not-so-old and not-so-expensive French bikes..... I guess I'll find out...

i don't read that forum regularly but it's been the one of the best sources of information whenever I'm doing research on old French bike stuff. And I also have gotten jealous a bunch of times, looking at the awesome bikes their members show off!

I am sure they will welcome your bikes, maybe not poor French grammar. Be sure to reference the French Keyboard utility to get the proper accents where necessary, on the older Mac OS's this was so easy... keycaps, where are you now?
