Here is the latest item in the randonnization of a 1963 Frejus TdF. I considered building a rack from scratch, but couldn't figure how to make a sturdier, more functional piece than the humble Swiss Pletscher: the rack that squashed a million seat stays 40 years ago. In order to avoid that, I built a bracket that anchors to the brake pivot. I also shortened the stays so it would sit closer to the fender. Finally, I painted the lower part of the rack platform blue, to look less generic and more in keeping with the frame & fenders.
In addition to having a French name, the Frejus has some actual French parts: Mavic Module "E" rims & Berthet Lyotard #23 pedals. Most of the rest is Italian, though the seat post & bar-cons are Japanese.
I still need to work out a front rack & lighting.
