Hi everyone,
I was wondering if anyone knows something about Jan de Reus bikes. I got one of those for my gf 2 years ago in the Netherlands and since she got her new roadbike she hasn't been using it at all :( .
Since I have a few bikes myself, I was seriously thinking of selling it. The only thing I have changed on the bike, are the tires. Does it worth to keep and rebuilt as a vintage? Could somebody make a rough estimation of the price? (since not that many de Reus are out there) Thanks in advance!

Is that lugless? I'd say it's definitely worth keeping. In fact, my advice: Get rid of the gf and give the bike to the next one, who hopefully appreciates such stuff! :)

Haha, apparently I am planning to keep both or maybe sell it for the right price (the bike :) )
Yes it is lugless with no prominent welding signs. Do you have any idea of how rare these are? I bought it from a 60 yrs old lady in Amsterdam and she was the second owner. I am not sure which components have been changed apart from the brake levers that she changed into dual pull for convenience.
