My friend Patrick is selling sold* his 1958 Rene Herse bicycle. Classic (legendary) French constructeur bike in a daily-rider incarnation. All set for a randonneur around 6 feet tall who likes blue. If I had the money, I’d buy it and just stoop a little. The top tube is only one cm shorter than my Ross

The salient points:

  • 61cm c-c Seat Tube, 57cm c-c Top Tube
  • Old Phil/Mavic wheels
  • Fresh blue powdercoat
  • Lefol hammered aluminum fenders
  • Classic canvas and leather luggage set included
  • Racks and TA bottle cages included (they’re also blue)
  • Sanyo BB dynamo, IQ fly headlight, Soubitez taillight
  • Simplex retrofriction downtube levers, simplex derailleurs
  • 14-28 Shimano 5 speed freewheel (looks new, clicks a little)
  • Extra bulbs, 2 extra bottom bracket assemblies,
  • No pedals unless you want rat traps with clips and straps
  • You pay packing and shipping from Albuquerque, NM

  1. If somehow it got unsold (more money) I’d be really interested!!

    Do you know of any others that might be out there looking for a new home!

  2. I will let you know if I hear anything. I WISH I knew where all the Herses are! Actually, that would just make me sad, since I’m poor. :^)
