I'am pretty sure that it is a Velo-Solex, not a real bike.
Nice picture anyway !

For an American in Paris - on a bike, point of view of this scene; read Dan Behrman's wonderful The Man Who Loved Bicycles

Yes, looks like a Solex.

Robert Bresson was a film maker. This shot is probably from Henri Cartier-Bresson.
