I always liked those TdFs.The 57cm Tdf being offered on the Phila. Craigslist right now would be getting the business here if only I was a half foot shorter.Restoring Franco bikes can be challenging.


Thanks! I grew up with the Franco bikes, so I know a few of the ins and outs and have some parts squirreled away... this one is not really a restoration, just a fixer upper for my wife to ride- not original or even french parts, but a functional ride.
