Our hipster department has refurbished this beautiful Bertin bicycle. Before it was a wreck with lots of missing parts (that’s why we got it for free). Now it’s a real beauty again.
Purist will probably hate the fact, that it got new wheels and show off fenders but we wanted to build something you can actually use every day. The bycicle’s previous owner had already changed the gear shift and levers. The machine hammerd fenders are as close to the wheels as you can get. Waterdrops between these two parts will probably evaporate by the friction before they reach the end of the fender. We upholstered the seat and worked hard to get the 'MAFAC RACER" breaks working again. Thanks to the French origin of the crank we couldn’t add any off the shelf pedals but had to get vintage ones with the right diameter of the thread. More details maybe once we update the output section again.
