I saw this bike at the Portland NAHB show and i thought that it was really nice looking. After reading the description I find it odd that it wasn't built with proper fender clearance. I do appreciate the above board disclosure though!

I agree quite the beauty.



But do you need a Hearse to transport your Herse?

I remember seeing photos of this machine promoting the restart of RH. Nice bike, but like most anything in that Wedgewood Blue color, not as striking as it could be.

That fork story is quite something. Talk about extreme coldsetting.

For the price, it would almost make sense to buy the frame and have a new fork made with this revised rake.

That's brilliant, and likely right on point.

This one's real nice...shows up at Playland in Rye, NY around Halloween. I kind of remember a cousin in Pennsylvania back in the '70s saying guys used these as "campers" to go hunting. I'd rather transport a Rene Herse in one (or in anything for that matter...as long as I had a Rene Herse to transport!)
