French frames are a blinkin nightmare. I've spent a couple of hours this afternoon trying to find out what it is,and annoyingly I've found something pretty close, but no date or model!

There is a fair amount of rust under the paint in places (like the seat stays), so instead of ending up with his n hers pink Mercier C&Vs, it may get stripped for a home respray...

Forgot the link... Braze on shifters and slightly nicer lugs, but otherwise...

Nice! I like Merciers, but have given up on trying to identify the models.

About the same as dinner and a movie, but you get to skip the small talk.

You must be getting the senior citizen discount at both the theater and wherever you're dining.

Go back re-read his post. The OP's question was "What does 20 euro buy you." and Robbie's saying, the same as etc.

He's not talking cheap dinners, here. Just cheap something else.
