Ashley Bachelie
Hi my name is Ashley Bachelier. Grandson of Leslie Bachelier (son of John Bachelier). I find this article fascinating. What an incredible piece of family history.
Thank you so much for the 3 replies, My laptop crashed and I lost all data and despite trying to find this page I failed. I got in touch with the Bugatti Owners Club only the other day and info is forthcoming from their archivist. .... and now I have found this page again. I will contact Leon and John by email and Warwick122 my email is [email protected], would be glad to hear from you. Many thanks to you all. Richard is delighted with the response
 More about Leon Bachelier  
Leon was the son of George Gordon Bachelier from his first of three wives, and the grandson of Leon George Bachelier, a chauffeur (to Sir Norman Forbes-Robinson, the actor, amongst others) who occasionally called himself George Baxter, and George and his brother Leslie, ran a garage in Putney Hill and used to race Bugattis on the side. Leon George's father was Leon Bachelier who was born in Paris in 1844 and was a chef or chief cook, family legend placing this at the Langham Hotel in London, but I cannot go further back than that. Leon George married my great aunt Daisy Laura Warwick, so Leon Donald is my first cousin, once removed.

 Info please  
Does anyone know more about this model. I believe that it was built for a Lord Bachelier, or at least in his name.
You will see my interest!
My ex-husband Richard was the son of George Gordon Bachelier and nephew of Leslie Bachelier.He knows that his father raced Bugattis and that his grand-father Leon Georges Bachelier moved to England to race here. Nothing further is known about Leon, does anyone have any information about him and is there a family connection with Lord Bachelier?
Richard never knew about the Bachelier Roadster and in curious to find out more. Thank you
