I want to replace the handles on my vintage speedy but remember someone saying in a thread that LV won't touch any bags made by the French Co. So, I emailed the French Co. and asked to get a quote on the repair. The reply? Apparently, they were bought out by another company January of this year and will no longer be repairing French Co LVs. So that means I'm stuck with these handles. I guess the handles aren't horrible and I could live with not replacing them. But I was sooo looking forward to it. Just thought I'd share.
