This is an unusual but very practical bike that can be used for everyday riding.
Started life as a 1963 (I think) Peugeot tourer.
The frame has been de-lugged and powder coated in a sort of magenta/maroon satin finish. The bars were powder coated to match.
Wheels were new builds 700c (622) size using new Rigida twin wall rims in silver. With brown leather hub cleaners.
Tyres are new too in a matching brown colour.
Bar grips are brown cork
Front brake is an original Mafac centre pull that works well.
Rear hub is where all the magic is ! It's a new S/A two speed kick back with a kick back brake too.
Saddle is a brown Brooks B66
Saddle bag is a matching brown leather one.
This was a build of passion as i wanted a bike with no cables and as that it worked well but in the end i capitulated and fitted front brake in keeping with it's age as it was just more practical to ride that way.
So what we have ended up with is a very pretty bike with a vintage feel but with modern day practicability.
This bike is certainly not for everyone but if you are looking for something different that is still a practical every day ride it maybe for you.
Price is £395 and i'm in BR6 and that does not include the pedals you see in the piccies but i do have others.
Mmm. looking at these pictures i don't like the brake lever..........got plenty more though so you can take your choice if the white one doesn't float your boat
