"I've never ridden such fabulous wheels as the Ghisallo wood rimmed wheels you built for me. I glued FMB Paris Roubaix tubulars to them and the ride is phenomenal!"
A bike for the ages.
Rick Mayer in Connecticut took time deciding just how to equip his classic Hetchins. Wood rims are not technically the same era but the aesthetic is totally consistent. I laced Corsa rims on a pair of NOS Campagnolo Record hubs and it's easy to think they were original equipment.
Isn't the gold of the head and seat tube panels a good visual with the warm honey brown of the beech wood rims?
What a nice gift to a favorite ride. Let's hope Rick finds plenty of time to enjoy his "new" machine.
