We obtained this bike couple years before we finally got around to build it. It was probably the first Mixte frame we stumbled on and we really loved the unique geometry Mixte’s possess. We bought it from a local vintage bike lover who buys many bikes from local scrappers. Like many of our bikes, this one was saved from being sold for scrap metal money.
We collected some of our cleanest components and set them aside for the assembly of this bike. I love the look of mixte’s built with chopped & mustache handlebars.
We sold this bike with ease to a young woman looking for a clean and attractive commuter. I was very happy with the turn out but in hindsight, I would have used white wall tires and a white saddle. I have an obvious partiality to color coordination.
