1961 Jack Taylor Super Tourist

Here is Curtis's 1961 Jack Taylor Super Tourist. a couple years ago he had Mike Barry at Mariposa Bicycles to repaint it, and to boxline it. The original paint was flaking off in chunks and had to be repainted. The bike is equipped with original Cyclo rear derailleur, TA cranks, Mafac cantilever brakes. The front wheel pictured is a replacement for the time being, the original had a punctured tube. The pedals are also not original. The lighting is made by Lucifer, a Swiss company.

Thanks, I corrected that. I should have looked closer at the light. the Baby Lucifer.
