I don't remember what my box looked like, but I bought one of the 1987 5-Star reissues ("used" from a private party, but still in the box) back in the late 80's or very early 90's. I wish the photo...

Can we assume that you're referring to Narhay's pink bike? Also, could you please provide some more information about this? I'd really like to learn more about these Mercier bikes. Thanks.
