1920s ‘Cycles Paul’
(Manufactured by Riffaterre of Bourg-de-Peage, France)
A ‘Cycles Paul’ is a very rare machine. This one is in excellent unrestored original condition, and would be ideal for a vintage bicycle enthusiast named Paul!
‘Paul’ was a model name used by ‘Cycles Riffaterre’. I’ve not managed to find out anything about this company, except they are mentioned in a 1908 Michelin Guide, which revealed their location as Bourg-de-Peage. The postcard illustrated above shows that town.
