Very stylish :)

Just curious, what's the thing that looks to be brazed onto the left fork blade ?

think it's to mount a light or dynamo,

guess the bike used to be more like a 'randonneur'-type of bike


(reached the cape of 100 posts! btw :lol: )

Ah! just twigged..........the bike was meant to be ridden on the "wrong side of the road" :)

I was expecting the light to be attached to the right fork LOL

Still going today but as a British Brand (!) and their website has loads of excellent historical video clips about them. Well worth a trawl through.

I should soon have my 'Freddy Maertens Homage' machine completed. Details to follow!
