By creating the new version of our website, we realized that some emblematic bikes of Victoire history were missing. We fill this void by coming back on these bicycles and their history, from their creation to now.

This is the very first Victoire bike, made on our Anvil jig, at the beginning of April 2012. Made for a friend from Paris, this urban bicycle is assembled from Columbus Zona tubing by TIG process. The finish was a test, with a rear triangle polished-mirror (including the welding of Victoire dropouts) and a frond one sandblasted, excepted the Victoire logo on the top-tube. We did not have torch at this period, that's why there were no cable-stop. for the rear brake. This frame is now part of Victoire's history, and is, to our knowledge, riding daily in the streets of Paris.
