    Thanks again, Munny, for these close-ups. Very nice. For the L'Express I'm not looking for an exact copy but rather a similar look & feel. I will have go the all-Simplex route with what I've got:

    I just checked the list of brands in the 1953 Belgian Bicycle and Motorcycle Yearbook, but I didn't find Standard or v.L. in the rather long list. Pretty much every LBS had his own brand at the time,...

    Terrific bike, Munny, thanks for posting it. That's a very inspiring build too, pretty much the look I have in mind for the L'Express.

    Interesting bike. My first thought when I saw the pictures was Belgian as well. The Simplex Competition shifter is probably from the sixties....

    I just found out that the man I rode with (see post # 2) was three time Dutch champion and 1952 world champion Piet van Heusden. I feel a lot better now. :)

    Thanks! Well, Holland is a small country, but with 20 million bicycles to just 17 million inhabitants, there's gotta be some nice stuff.

    Found one more on the phone. BTW, the small-wheeled RIH in the background belongs to the Willem Eindhoven owner's son. Hand-built by Wim van der Kaaij. Very cool.

    A special mention is for this Mercier and its rider. When the weather turned bad after the lunch stop, the group I was riding with picked up speed and I was the first to get dropped. :(

    Nice bikes in Haarlem today

    Today was the yearly 'Tour d'Historique' in Haarlem. I'd missed the previous editions, and I'd been looking forward to finally joining it. The weather was less than we'd hoped for. In the morning it...

    My wife had a pair on her Nishiki mixte. They worked fine, here in the flatlands. They look quite similar to the Dura Ace centerpulls from the same era.

    I can't tell you the model or year, but I can tell you that mrs non-fixie's Benotto 500 Lady doesn't have a cut-out either.

    The reason I mentioned the PX 60 in post # 26 was because of the fork decals. PX 10s tend to have Reynolds fork decals, whereas the PX 60 has the 'French Flag Arrow' decals. That's basically it.

    It's the color, rather than the absence of a generator mounting tab that makes me wonder. PX 60s tend to be gold metallic.

    ^ Very nice! Thanks for sharing it. WRT fenders: looks like there are some toe overlap issues you may want to consider before investing heavily.
