No worries, dude. We have no problem with that. Just try and find a translator that is a bit more accurate?

I really like that Mercier, glad you left it the original (team lavender) color, which is "correct". But don't understand why the Spanish Zeus became a Dutch bike...and a super patriot at that, covered with Netherlands flags and in William of Orange...orange.
Anyhow, bring the rear axle forward in the drop out and it will shift better.
Lots of work shown in these renovations, I wouldn't call them restorations but you really have done a number on them...congrats!

Amazing, you have done an excellent job restoring those beauties. Let me be the first to say intoxicated Daddy surname!

Ok friends- Our new member is using a translate program...so

with respect- Please write to him in simple english. no slang, or terms we only know

Washing bike parts in the shower... I'm guessing you're not married?

Anyway, very interesting pictures, thanks for sharing.

Very nice work saving those bicycles from the scrap pile. They are beautiful and you will enjoy riding them for many years. Others will enjoy seeing them also. Thank you for sharing your restorations work with us. It is always fun to see what can be done with something that seems to be completely used up or worn out.
