What a beautiful set of photos Ray. People should take the time to look, even if not interested in purchase. So many closeups of a raw Rene Herse just gives one a good view of just how nicely the frame was detailed and constructed. It's my size but too rich for me to build up the way it deserves. I'd love to see one of those cars if they're as nice as you detail those bikes of yours. Any chance we'll be seeing you at Cirque? With a bike strapped to a Brit classic?

Happy trails,

Since I am now doing Brit cars, I can use the funds for that project. You will be able to get a genuine RH F&F without international shipping charges and customs duties and taxes. The frame is a 60cm seat tube with a 57.5 top tube all measured C to C. You can see all of the detail better than I can explain in the photos within the attached link. When I received the bike from France it had the derailleur hanger damaged but I had it repaired. You can see that detail in the photos. The F&F has been stripped as it was a bad repaint and I was going to hav
e it repainted. You can now restore it to your specifications. After stripping I was told that the bike may have been tweaked so I took several photos with a straight edge against the down tube so you can judge for yourself. I purchased it as an undamaged F&F but the hanger was damaged in transit due to poor packaging. You can ask all the questions you need to ask, I can take any detailed photos you would want to see. As you can see the serial number on the frame and fork match and there is no filler, you can see the bare frame with all of its finer detailed brazing. I am asking $1695 shipped, so there you have it. A genuine Rene Herse F&F for sale here on the CR list. As always, a money back guarantee within 30 days if not satisfied. Feel free to contact me with any questions. http://picasaweb.google.com/BiPsycho/Herse Cheers Ray Homiski Elizabeth, NJ 908-355-2978
