Hi from France !

Hi everybody,

I'm Greg from France. I'm working on a project about an ancient cycling brand that I will enjoy to introduce to you.

The ancient brand I'm working on is Helyett, I quickly talk about it in the Classic & Vintage forum, page 2.

Yes, welcome/bienvenue!
If all goes according to plan I'll be buying a pale blue Helyett tomorrow (for an interesting price..).
From the seller's images, it looks like a 58 or even 60cm frame, although if it's Gitane era then maybe a 59 is also possible - I'll compare it to my '75 Super Olympic, which is a 58cm.
The brakes are Mafac Racer CPs, there's a Sugino chainset and Huret déraillieurs, although I can't tell yet what models. No idea yet as to the tubing used, but I'd be surprised (and very happy) if it turns out to be 531. :0).
As soon as I get it home I'll start cleaning and re-greasing, etc., after which I'll know a lot more.
If I love it then I'll keep it...

Welcome, from... SW France!
I'm currently restoring a '77 (Gitane-era) Helyett to sell-on and find an earlier model in my size (60cm) - not easy in the land of smaller frames. :0)
