Here’s a marque we haven’t seen for a while. This is Gabe S’s 1973 Mercier. Nice to hear she’s come full circle.
My friend Frank gave me this bike in bad shape about ten years ago. I intended to fix it up but it sat in my shed for five more years another pal[Scott] wanted it so I gave it to him. Scotts son stripped it and left the frame hanging in his garage. Last summer I was checking out Scotts sons fixie and saw the old frame hanging. We discussed modifying and I got the old frame back. At first it was going to be updated then I decided to check ebay for original parts. WOW bike lust set in and since then I have been all over getting parts. I even bought a peugeot for the crank set. This is a great hobby for me. Thank you for the website. Gabe S. Stockton Ca
