The Huret Eco, rebranded as Sachs-Huret (even the pulley wheels get the treatment), newly (and badly) finished in matte chrome with tasteful grey plastic ‘style elements’ and, in the case of this example, supplied ready to attach to a Campagnolo pattern dropout.
None of this can disguise the fact that, by the mid 1980’s, Japanese designs were so far ahead that they were over the horizon.
