  • Description:
    Every year there comes this one bike into our shop of which we have no idea who actually made it.
    We scratched our heads, we went through all our memories but still, no frame builder came to our minds who could be responsible for this steed.

    What seems to be likely is, that the bike was manufactured in the Netherlands or Belgium in the early 1970s, probably 1972 as the parts are pointing to this year.
    Frame and fork appear to be made of Reynolds 531 tubing which have subsequently been polished and chromed. This was an effortful process which, together with the top class Campagnolo Record groupset of its time, makes it probable that the bike was made for professional level racing.
    Eyelets for mudguards, which can usually be found on amateur racing bikes and even an some professional road bikes of this time, are missing on the Campagnolo dropouts. The seat tube angle is relatively flat at 72° and the top tube rather short for a bike of this time.
    Taking everything in account, we can assume that the bike was custom built for a very ambitious amateur or a professional rider.

    And what is definitely clear is the fact that this would be a nice bike to use in a historic cycling event or vintage rides. The old chrome still makes this bike look flashy. »See Details
