      Rene Herse randonneur bicycle, 1975, fantastic condition. - £2300
      Spectacular 1974 Rene Herse randonneuse.

      53,5 cm middle of BB to center of seat tube, 56 cm top tube c to c.

      700C wheels.

      Exceptional bike in exceptional condition.

      This Herse shows every sign of an extremely low mileage bike : very little wear to the chainwheel teeth, perfectly clean inside of mudguards, perfect logos on the rims, very little brake wear to the rim sidewalls, fantastic paint, lining, chrome, and shiny unmarked alloy.

      A couple of small dents to the frame and mudguards mean the bike isn't absolutely mint, but it's very close to perfect.

      Absolute top of the line bike with all the little extras that went on Herse's pet bicycles : SKF bottom bracket, internal brake cable, RH rollers, dynamo operated with a lever, RH cranks and stem, chromed fork top and stays, superb lugwork, brazed-on lights, fantastic front carrier that is a work of art in its own right.

      Parts are of course the best available at the time in France : Maxi-Car hubs, Super-Champion rims, Huret Success titanium derailleurs, Philippe pro bars, Idéale 90 saddle, Mafac Competition brakes, Atomico bell, Campagnolo QRs, etc

      This is one of the last bikes to leave the Herse workshop while René was still alive, and is a testimony to the quality that he managed to maintain right to the end of his life.
