Simplex - Tarif No 180

Simplex - Tarif No 180 scan 1 main image

This is the price list that accompanied the launch of Simplex’s new plastic Prestige derailleurs.

The prices are in ‘nouveaux francs’, the new franc that was introduced in 1960 at the rate of one new franc to 100 old francs. Wikipedia shows a chart showing the value of a new franc in 1962 as being equivalent to around 1.4 Euros in 2007 - so the revolutionary Prestige does not appear to have been a particularly cheap item.
