Lowie and Christiaens

1938 Paris-Nice winner Jules Lowie (left) rides with teammate Georges Christiaens. Lowie is wearing the race leader's jersey. Note the different patterned bands on the seattubes of their "Charles PĂ©lissier" bicycles. Note also the "Reynolds 531" decals, "cafe Sanka" water bottles, lack of any chrome on the frames & forks, and cloth tape on the first two inches of Lowie's brake cable housings, where his hands rub against them.
