Hi,
My mid 1970's Mercier has mercier engraved on the top of the seatstays. It also has an M engraved in the lug at the top of the downtube. Frame is 531 with campag dropouts. Can anybody throw light on the level of the frame?
Cheers

Morning and welcome @velohomme

With 531 and pantograph it's not going to be a bad one I wouldn't have thought .

Once you have posted a few more times you should be able to add a picture as that might help others

Welcome to the forum.
Sounds rather nice so let's have some pics.
If for any reason you're have problems posting maybe due to being a new member can I suggest you post a link to a photo sharing site if you can.

Had a link sent to me. veloretrocourse.proboards.com. Looks like a Tour du Monde. 1976. 2729 francs with dura ace.

Hi there Nonowt,
Thanks for the links. Looks like a Tour du Mode. There was a 1976 catalogue. Came with dura ace which mine has for the princely sum of 2729 francs.
Looking forward to some pictures. Is it Mercier pink?

I love 70s French bikes. I had a bottom of the range Peugeot UE8 a few years ago which I'd have happily kept bad it been a better fit - very stylish.
