Well boys and girls, sadly I must part with some bicycle that I swore to keep forever. Life changes dictate that I get rid o'stuff. This is the first batch. More to come.
1) Early 60's Frejus Tour day France. 57 c-c top tube and 54 c-c seat tube. Purchased from an esteemed list member years ago, was in sad original condition when I received it. I stripped it down to bare frame and spend close to 40 hours refurbishing it. Machined some new parts; can't tell the difference from the originals. Two sets of wheels; one clincher for go, one set of tubulars- the originals- for show. The bonus cool parts are Frejus embossed front and rear fenders. I gave the LOVE to this bike during the refurb. It gleams!! It is beautiful and ready to ride. $800/reasonable offer.
2) Early 60's Olmo Special. Completely original. I have added NOS hoods and adjuster hoods. Another bike I stripped down to bare frame and cleaned until it sparkled and shone and then put it back together. $600/reasonable offer.
Folks, I took brass, stainless, and toothbrushes to these bike to eliminate rust and dirt. Mojo galore. Many photos available. Please e-mail and I will send.
