Parisian Velo Advertising Art, maybe by a Young Picasso?

Bonjour from Paris!  Don't you love this Velo Ad Art, right in the heart of the 5th arrondissement  

It's hard to read the "sell" copy, thanks to graffiti tagging  -- could be the work of a young Picasso, Basquiat, somebody equally famous?  My friend Jim H, polyglot, world traveler and francophile helped with the translation.  Looks like an ad for "gepetto" (these may be  scooters?), and sales, rentals repairs of the working man's bicis.

Carolyn and James T. were at the final Stage of the 2014 Tour de France. James iPhoned the pic to me, thought the velo would be a fine addition to the Poppy Blog.

Attn readers:  what do YOU think this is all about?
