Mercier Special Tour de France
A 54cm 1970’s Mercier Special Tour de France. The bike is in original condition (exactly as it arrived with us!), has the original Stronglight, Simplex and Mafac components, it also has Sunshine high flange hubs with Mavic tubular rims and Wolber Pro SP1 tyres.
Mercier were famously ridden by Raymond Poulidor the “Eternal Second”, France’s most popular professional cyclist. On the Vintage Velo blog we have an article, “Poor old Poulidor“ written by Tony Varey that sheds some light on Poulidor’s remarkable career.
