56 Boulevard de Clichy, Paris
Produced until 1936

These bicycles were among the first modern lightweights as we know them.. 26" high pressure wheels, fully brazed up frames (vs being bolted together) and established patterns in bicycle making that continue to this day. See Hilary Stone's article in the Classic Lightweight's web site HERE
