Velosolex Concorde Bicycle Restoration
We went wild on this complete restoration – renovation. Haris wanted to cycle after many years with his road bicycle that kept in storage. This period of his life wanted to cycle to work, cycle with his daughter or with friends. He wanted an allaround bicycle. So we have changed almost everything.
New rims Mavic Open Elite laced with his old hubs, new Panaracer 700×32 tires and silver fenders. Changed the bottom bracket with a new closed, and add a new touring/trekking Shimano 48x38x28 chainwheel with his old pedals. Also we have put a new 6 speed freewheel 14-28t paired with a new rear derailleur.
For many people changing gears with the shifters in the down tube position is tricky, when you have to cycle through traffic. So we have changed the shifters and move them in the stem, for quicker and more relaxed changing.
Also we have added new brake levers Shimano paired with inline levers for secure handling.
Matching the saddle sometimes can be tricky, but not with this beauty. We have mached a vintage two color Bassano that completes the whole build.
Finally the vintage look of the cotton bar tape with gel under and finish of waxed cord reminds you the history of this bike.
Long Live the Steel Bicycles!
Steel is real!
