Regular price £995.00 Sale

This is a classic and rarely seen French marque in wonderful condition. The frame features nicely cut lugwork and lovely sculpted chain stays. It in fine condition with no dents or dings. The paintwork is a little worn but carries a really lovely patina. The original decals and box lining are present along with the gorgeous brass head badge. All components are in superb condition and work extremely well. The quality of the kit is truly astonishing and the gorgeous chrome bars and stem are really lovely. There are a couple of rivets missing from the nose of the saddle, but it remains extremely comfortable. The ride is absolutely incredible, offering smooth and satisfying progress with very little effort. The riding position is supremely comfortable and the machine feels so ergonomically sound while aboard. One fine machine!
