This is beautiful and i want it ..

However, the geometry around the stem looks all wrong, if it's a 20" bike I guess the owner could have changed it if they were a bit short.. unless the photo is wierd ..

Anyone agree the angle of the stem looks wrong, or is it just me ????

It wasn't going to stop me going for it, was just curious as to whether anyone else thought it looked wrong.

The guy states it's all original in the listing but it doesn't look like a standard velocity.

He does say in his listing that he " has the original brake levers and stem".

:wink:

I'd buy it if I was taller.. Damn my legs
