Awesome customer's bike we recently put together

     This is a bike a that a customer recently brought in to have us put together for him. It was half assembled and missing some  parts. Our superb Mechanic David was able to complete the bike and make all the necessary adjustments. He set up the 3 speed Cyclo (British) rear derailleur and shifter. We supplied the rare cable and housing. It functions well. The owner said the bike is from the 1930's- 1940's. We determined it was French in origin. There are no makers marks anywhere. It did have a  French steerer diameter as well as a host of other obstacles that we were able to sort out with minimal headache. It is set up with a mix of old and new, which is what the owner specified.  We hope he enjoys it!

While many of the components are a bit anachronistic, these handlebars take the cake.
