Post War French Aviac Aluminum Bicycle

 Cool bike we bought a couple years ago. These pictures were taken by Dale Brown of Classic Rendezvous when we brought it down to Cirque when we got the bike. It was as found, with the aluminum rack on top of a rare rear Lefol fender with a rack built onto it.
