Extremely rare alloy framed 1949 Mercier meca Dural bicycle with simplex four speed derailleur gear system. A very rare find, do your research...these were built for Mercier by the Dural company and were very expensive in 1949 hence why they are even rarer now.
Condition is very good for its 72 years. The alloy 'moustache' handlebars were sourced in France as the bike had steel bars when I bought it. Wheels are also alloy Wolber Super 650b, also pretty hard to find...with large flange hubs and four speed rear freewheel (the wheels, which came with the bike were rusted out steel ones). The chain set is alloy two-piece with removable chain ring and rubber block Lyotard pedals which appear to be original to the bike.
The chain has been removed for restoration...I was planning to give this bicycle a light restoration and if it doesn’t sell, it will be completely rebuilt. Final pic shows rear left dropout with serial number 849. Im assuming this is the date of manufacture as no other numbers can be found on the frame. Please email serious questions, happy to ship internationally but please email me for a quote first.

A popular choice with VH customers, we’ve built quite a few of these 1950s style cruisers, with a heavy euro influence. Based on a classic mens roadbike frame. Peugeots always look good, but we can use any frame. The bike is rebuilt with new running gear, wheels, bottom bracket and chain / chainset. Porteur handlebars are added, or we will fit your choice of bar if required. Generally these work well as a single speed, but we also build with 6/7 speed derailleur gear option. Ladies frames are built up in the same style, and we either use a used frame in original paint, or can paint to your choice of colour, with new decals.
We are able to use any combination of frame, handlebars, saddle, tyres and components. Our Cruisers are bespoke and as such, we're able to create whatever you have in mind. Frames can be used as they are, or we can paint to any colour of your choice and apply new decals. As to gears, you can go for single speed or choose a 6/7 Derailleur option.
