CYCLES MERCIER, FRANCE LOIRE
Updated 5/26/2006    Click on images to see a larger view.

A very old French maker who sponsored many top racers
and manufactured many makes and models over the years...
 

     Rue de Gutenberg, not far from the centre of St Etienne until the company went into liquidation in the mid-80s.  "Cycles Mercier France-Loires" continued carrying the brand "Mercier" after bankruptcy in the mid-80's.
     Currently it forms part of the Accell Group and produces bicycles in a place called "Andrezieux Boutheon" very much near St Etienne.
T
he Mercier brand has also reappeared on mail-order Chinese-made  bikes in the USA, apparently as a result of a licensing arrangement.
