The Very Large Hadron Collider design is converging on a program where a 233 km circumference tunnel would first be occupied by a low field dipole system producing 40 TeV in the center of mass, followed by a higher field magnet system producing nearly 200 TeV in the center of mass. We consider the possibility of first using the tunnel for a large e 1 e 2 collider. We assume that the total radiated synchrotron power will be limited to 100 MW. We describe the design strategy, the luminosity and
