Old frame / Custom paint / Torpedo 3 Speeds / Rear Torpedo brake + caliper front
From the custom paint to the the hand built wheels
This Bicycle is full of cool details. The colors of the custom paint are vibrant and contrast nicely with the black of the chain ring and rear rim. The Torpedo shifter its been smartly positioned on the classique stem, allowing for a narrow retro handlebar. A modern aerodynamic rim on a classic Torpedo hub as well as a contemporary Miche chain ring mounted on a classic crank are both part of the dialogue between past and present that is contained in this bicycle.
Many thanks to Xaroule, the master builder. And don't forget to check his other work Csepel Royal Frisco in Sturmey Archer version.
