Did you repaint and letter the bike? I have the same bike in red and would love to repaint. What does it say on the top head tube just under the seat by the flag. Mine is worn off.
Hey Phillip. Sorry, I've let this blog go a while. The paint is original. I did have a whole new decal set made for it. The original decals were beat up pretty bad, but could be made out. The only one we "guessed" at was the decal on the head tube. I just had a standard Mercier script logo put on.I'll take a look at the bike tonight and see what the decal is under the seat.charles
Phillip - It says "Made in France" in fancy script next to the French flag. I'd love to see some images of your bike and hear your story about how you found it. You can email me at cwestergard AT gmail DOT com
Let me know what you think!
