Seeing as the original 'Retro bikes you saw' thread seems to have been accidentally deleted (see here
) I thought i'd start up version 2. Repack Rider would have no-where to post if I didn't.
I saw this today while out at lunch with the Wife & Kids. It's a 'McLachlan'. Never seen one before. Has little bike/Australian silhouettes inside the 'a's, pretty cool.
I sat adjacent to it for a good 3/4 of an hour but the owner didn't come back for me to quiz. It's pretty unique. From what I could tell from the frame decals & from it's appearance, it's Australian made from lugged Reynolds 531 (incl. the nicely lugged fork), has luggage & mudguard mounts (so it's likely designed for touring???). Nice, tight rear end. Pretty unique with it's extended seat tube & seat stays. I thought it was pretty cool.
It has a 21 sp Deore DX (1990) groupset with retro-modded LX rapidfire + levers. Girvin flexstem up front. White Turbo saddle.
