⭕ Rene Herse Sportif made in 1949.

This is a unique chance to get a beautiful and rare 1940s Rene Herse, especially in a 700C size. They dont come that often on eBay, especially in this condition. This Sportif originally was owned by the director of the French subsidiary of Champion, maker of spark plugs. He had two identical bikes, one for events, the other as a back-up. This bike has all the original Rene Herse components and is a top-of-the-line model. Everything mounted on it is extremely difficult to come by, from the close to NOS condition Lefol Le Paon 700C fenders to the Philippe bar plugs, not mentionning the perfect condition Herse components. One Reynolds stickers is missing on one side of the fork, I will provide this sticker.
