As he mentioned the bike requires a coaster brake - so the braze on is for the the coaster brake lever...... Regards

Speaking of Grant's auctions and of Goeland, Grant is also offering this Goeland porteur:

But I'm puzzled. The frame has what appears to be a chainstay brazeon for and old style Cyclo or Simplex RD, but it's on the wrong chainstay, i.e. on the left chainstay rather than the right. Is this for something else, or did Goeland make a left-hand drive machine, which seems unlikely?

The Herse, n┬░ 23 of 1945 is the earliest Rene Herse I have ever seen. Does anyone know of an earlier one?
