Paris

"Rene Andre rode extensively for Rene Herse in the 1940s and 50s before setting up shop in Paris in the 1960s. He was an extremely successful racing cyclist..."
"He became a constructeur of some note, very popular with serious Parisienne and French cyclists who aspired to but could not afford a bespoke bike from the likes of Rene Herse or Alex Singer. Some of his bikes were constructed from scratch 'in house' whilst others were modified and 'improved' versions of high quality bikes or framesets from other manufacturers."
