In 1946, Gaston Lapierre started a small bicycle shop in Dijon, France in the beautiful region of Burgundy. From the start, Lapierre produced also road bikes, which were not as well known as some bog names on the French market. In 1972 a new and bigger factory was constructed on the outskirts of Dijon in order to meet higher demand and to be able to grow.
When a new type of bicycles appeared and gained popularity, Lapierre made the right decision and got involved in the MTB mania. It was a great success and Lapierre is best known for their MTBs even today. In the 90s, production of road bikes has been restored and nowadays you can see teams like FdJ winning races on Lapierre bikes.
This Lapierre road bike stems from the late 80s. It is based on a steel lugged frame and is equipped with a set of French parts. The shifting is from Simplex and Sachs-Huret, while the hubs are from Normandy, rims from Mavic and the brakes from the Swiss Weinmann. It is a nicely preserved piece with still original light blue paintjob.
Great bike for everyday use, weekend rides and it will get you to your favorite cup of coffee in the unmistakable French style. A
