Just posted photos of a fairly rare (at least in this country) early 1960s Swiss-made CONDOR city bike to Wool Jersey.  Not your typical gas-pipe city bike, but built with Reynold 531 DB tubing and Nervex Pro lugs.  Campagnolo Gran Sport derailleurs with "Open C" downtube shift levers.  As with its other companion Swiss machines, it has the fancy fade paint with pinstriping/lining throughout.

Since the photos were taken, the fork mount light has now been correctly update with a period CIBIE dynamo headlamp.

I took this machine to last year's Cirques, and rode it during the initial rainy weather.  Actually a very nice riding bike.  Initially bought it with the intention to offer for sale, but decided to keep it in the collection for now.  It's a nice bike to pull out and ride with casual riding friends.

If interested, you may view the photos at the following Wool Jersey site address:
