1980s France Loire Evasion

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

France Loire Evasion, built in St Etienne. Seat tube 548cm c-c, top tube 57cm c-c. Built with what I think was the first commercially available ‘aero’ tubing (Camus Aero 7), and with a complete Shimano 600AX groupset (with the exception of the hubs – the bike originally had tubulars, but the owner swapped them for clinchers soon after, so they’re Maillard hubs with Mavic Module E rims). There’s very little wear on the components but as you can see it probably hasn’t been cleaned since the 80s and there’s rust through the (very thin) paint on the frame, as well as some spotting on chrome bits. Most of it will clean up very well though. The handlebars are interesting too – not seen that pattern before.
