A true classic

"Stronglight 49D" a true classic and contemporary with the  non less famed "TA pro cinc vis". Won it at e-bay after some last minute bidding.  That's how it looks after a thorough clean up and some polishing. The Q factor is low for current standars -well is really low since I had to replace the bottom bracket spindle for a longer one. A true classic is worth the time invested...


  1. Not only beautiful but a piece of cycling history as well. You know , old boy, "necessity is the mother of... progress" (I was unable to adress those bent chainrings of the Zeus cranks and also looked for a slightly wider range of gears)
