By the way, which bike did you take those Philippe bars of? The Grand Bois bars I got for Vittorio are supposedly a copy of Philippe Professional bars.

I'm not sure where those particular bars came from. They may have come from a bike, but I also remember buying some Philippe bar & stem sets at a swap meet in Ghent a few years ago, as I like the way they look and feel.

Okay, I can call it done for now. Still needs a bit of work here and there, but I can cycle on it. I mean, I still have to test ride it first, the weather hasn't been great lately..
And some pictures, of course. Sorry for the quality, I had to use my phone, the camera I wanted to use had no battery in it, I had forgotten to put it back

You can say that again, I was planning to work on my bikes today as well but the fierce winds and rain in between the sun were not all that inviting.

As for the Vittorio, I think one thing that would really fit this bike is a Son E6 halogen headlight. They pop up from time to time online, like this example for around €35.
But even without that its a beautiful bike.

Thanks! Also for the tip, that's a sweet looking headlight. Maybe I should get one indeed. I still have to fix the lights on the bike though, the cables are not connected, I left them like that for now.

Luckily, the weather has been much better today, so I took the bike for a short ride. I like it! The new bars are also super comfy, so I am happy with the changes I made. I would love to get a matching pair of Berthoud lowrider panniers, by the way. Can't do much touring with the small panniers I have.
