Friday bike

Thanks to Pat Brennan for suggesting this week's bike.

1955/56 Derny Taon 125

This distinctive bike was built in 1955-56 by the Derny company more famous for the 'pacing bikes' used during cycle races at velodromes.


The bike was designed by Roger Tallon, designer of the TGV high speed train, watches, and televisions amongst other things.
The bike unfortunately led to the demise of the Derny company, but their name lives on as velodrome pacing bikes are referred to as 'dernies'.
