René Herse Mixte

Some lucky lady (or man!) will get to become the next caretaker of this bike…

DSC_2740

51,5 cm c to top seat tube, 650B wheels.

1982 chrome mixte Herse, beautifully built as were practically all the very expensive chrome RHs.

Very complete and original bike, equipped with the best parts of the time : Huret titanium derailleurs, Campagnolo hubs, Rigida alloy rims, Ideale diagonale saddle, Mafac Competition brakes, Philippe stem and bars. Missing front light, crankset/pedals non-original.

The only negative point on this wonderful bike is the conditon of the chrome, on the top tube in particular, the bike is perfectly rideable but cosmetically imperfect.
