What the actual heck?! That is amazing and complex. From my bad translations, that is an award winning design for two speed drivetrain, perhaps kickback (retropedelage). Was tested in a mountain section of the Pyrenees, and is in unrestored condition. Incredible bike. The big skiptooth ring is really pretty too

Some really cool paint effects going on this GT with a combination of mesh drywall tape and floating masks

The pics made my head hurt for a few minutes. But after reading the text (understanding it better than I expected to, not having used my French lessons for anything since high school), and looking a bit closer, I think I get it. And it's a pretty cool (and very French) design.
Rétropédalage should mean back-pedalling. And each side must have a freewheel. So when you pedal backwards the small gear on the right side engages the large one, making the wheel spin forwards at a different ratio than the left side drive train, which is freewheeling.

As you are talking about the bikes you like,
just want to add that I like the line drawing and detail bike.
Anyone wanna build me a chromo one? Maybe disk brakes?

So much can be seen and understood from such a simple drawing.
Also,anything that can be thought up can be shared with not much money spent.
Probably cheaper to go full custom than building the OG(ary Fisher) version!
