Cycles Lucien Michard Made in Lyon, France , Frame Number 2015 - Lucien


Lucien Michard was a French racing cyclist and Olympic track champion. He won four successive world championships and lost a fifth even though he crossed the line first. He won a gold medal in the sprint at the 1924 Summer Olympics in Paris.


Frame was possibly made by Jaques Busset an artisan frame builder, renowned for his experimental modification of frames in ways that main stream manufacturers were not quite ready for - ports for bottle cages, internal cabling and the aero dynamics of a lugless steel frame. These things were not standard at the time this bike frame was crafted.

A note about our used bicycles. All Items are genuine vintage and whilst in full working order, may also so show signs of age or own some distinguishing marks. As well as these signs of character  there may also be some signs of rust (faint and few) and some signs of mottling on the chrome. Where possible we have tried to show these on photographs. These small imperfections are commensurate with what is expected of a bike of this age.The bikes are not new.
