A note about our vintage velo's


All Items are genuine vintage and whilst in full working order, may also so show signs of age or own some distinguishing marks. As well as these signs of character  there may also be some signs of rust (faint and few) and some signs of mottling on the chrome. We're possible we have tried to show these on photographs. These small imperfections and are commensurate with what is expected of a bike of this age.The bikes are not new.


The bike has the usual marks associated with a classic bike of this age. Most notably is some rough edging to the decals of the down tube , caused by a bottle cage that had previously been strapped to the bike.
