Country:France
Years:1970's; 1980's; 1990's; 2000's
Found On:Vintage Lightweights
Additional Info:
Painted aluminum headbadges were characteristic of the Follis marque from the 1930s onward, but the branding changed over that time. This version with the "Lyon" shield above the Follis name was used during the final period (1973-2007) under the ownership of Myriam Follis and her husband, Jean-Claude Chollet. During this time, Follis was best known for handbuilt tandem cycles made in their atelier near the Part-Dieu railway station in Lyon.
