• On a more positive note, I did spend a fun few days in Central France, helping a pal with his stall at the retro market in Lyon, Les Puces du Canal. Before the market on Sunday we spent a few days visiting all the vide greniers, brocantes and recycling centres (emmaus) we could find. I had very slim pickings bicycle wise. There was very little early stuff around, so I am still on the hunt for a set of brakes and levers. I did find a few tool pouches though, incliding my favourite find, a triangular crossbar pouch. It's very tired, but definitely worth saving. It must be at least 100 years old. (It's a perfect fit in the frame on the Bruneau Durieux)

    Also a few saddle tool pouches. The top one looks the oldest, and will go on the bike.
