I just bought a bicycle on a classified ads platform in France. I don't know anything about the brand and I couldn't find much information yet.
It is a Record Luxus Racer, as shown on the pictures below.
I have seen other people selling bikes of the same model, in various colors and in both men's and women's versions. Most of the pictures were found on classified ad sites from: Germany, Poland, Romania and Hungary.
However, the ads were outdated and had been removed so I couldn't get information there. Some ads were still up, but the sellers mention they don't have information about the bike's history.
The person I bought my bike from didn't know anything about it either.
My questions are:
- Which country is this bicycle from?
- Does this brand still exist?
- Where could I find more information about my Record Luxus Racer?
Please let me know if more pictures or information could be useful.
** the pictures aren't of my bike, but of a similar one from the Internet
