I just realized I have omitted posting my latest Belgian acquisitions in this thread.

In March this year I found a frame which is doing its best trying to look like a Groene Leeuw. Maybe it is, maybe it isn't. I have yet to find out.

This is how it came to me:



Because it had seen a lot of use, I decided to build it up with parts at hand and see how it rode, before committing to a restoration project. This is how I rode it and how it now sits in my study, waiting for a decision.



I haven't yet been able to identify the builder. If no new information comes to light my plan is to recommission it as a Groene Leeuw.

EDIT: more info on this machine is here: What have we here? A Groene Leeuw?

This years's other Belgian find is this TÚval frame. Made by Plume Sport in ~1967:



A separate thread on the subject is here: And also ... a Teval.
