The Vintage Bicycle by Steel Vintage Bikes
The fabulous folks at Steel Vintage Bikes in Berlin, Germany have produced a book showing a collection of steel bikes they have restored over the years. With bikes ranging from 1927 to 1989, there will be bikes you've never seen along with technical elements sure to excite.
The majority of the bikes are racing bikes, but there are a few randonneur and touring bikes mixed in as well. 48 bikes are showcased over 110 pages. Each bike features one drive side photo, several closeups, and a description of the bike and builder.
This is a great book for someone who loves older steel bikes or perhaps someone looking for inspiration from the past.
Hardcover, English language.
Printed in Germany.
Great Coffee Table Book. Nice photography and fine printing. Would have liked to have see a Schwinn Paramount, a Hetchins, and something from Japan.
Awesome book...when does Vol 2 come out? (hint, hint)
