Mercier Grand Prix Des Nations  1963 Special Edition Nervex Restored  Frame-Set 

More pics will be added


A Renovated Bicycle  Frame Beautifully Lined Nervex Professional Lugs

Nervex Bottom Bracket

Simplex Drop outs 

Made for 1963 Grand Prix Des Nations ( won by Raymond Poulidor) 

Reynolds Qualite A Tubes - an exported version of very basic 531


Compete with Headset and Bottom bracket - both Stronglight but importantly both with specific french threading - meaning any chnage of BB would need to be French threading or threadless. The steer on French forks of this era require french sized items - headset and cable hanger for example. You will require a 22mm stem diameter and a 25.4mm seat post 

I bought this frame in a sorry looking state - nothing major and restored to the sympathetic state you see before you. Repainted, some of the decals designed for this frame as near exact copies of originals. Such is the rarity of this model . I did find some versions of this model, none as high end as this and all different in one way or another.

My intention had been to build it up for myself but the sizing is just not quite right for me, hence the reluctant sale. I never say that :-(


The sizing suits someone 6ft or above 

Forks were rechromed and lug lining hand painted 

Measurements: The frame is a racing geometry or  58cm with a long reach is another description.

Top Tube Centre to Centre:   58cm

Seat Tube ;  Top to Centre:  62cm & Centre to Centre:  61cm

Can be used for Gear/ Brake lever system or Downtube Shifting

Wheels Required:   27mm ideally with tubs but clinchers are also suitable. Built for centre pull brakes

Spacing for wheels :  Front: 100 mm / Rear 125 mm

A racing bicycle for multi use as is evident by mudguard eyelets - common place in france for racing bikes at that time. Original tin badge was missing from frame, so unfortunately has been replaced by the modern stick on version.

Frame weight ( as in picture)   3.7kg

will require cable clips and guides for building up

UK postage = others please ask

This frame is close to 60 years old, its is without rust but you may see minor blemishes under the paint from the patina of the frame . All adding to a beautifully lived life .

A note about our used bicycles & Frames. 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.
