[CR] KOF Rene Herse new 650b image link - not at NAHBS


Example: History:Norris Lockley



Hi CR folks,

Something cool that you will not see at Indy. 

With all the handbuilt bike fever this weekend, we thought we'd post photos of a recent Rene Herse 650b - special Edelux bracket, handmade rear tailig ht with stadlight, stem cap mounted light switch - the cool Herse stuff.   You can see it by clicking on the following link - file sizes are large so give them a few moments to load.

This year we chose not to go to NAHBS as cost, location, and with our build que it didn't seem to make sense.  Plus it looks like we're in g ood company as some of North America's very best builders aren't at In dy this year either - Weigle, Baylis, Gordon, Peirera. 

Now if you are reading this and you are going to Indy?  Check out the cool bikes then go north two hours to Auburn Indiana and visit the Auburn C ord Duesenberg Museum. It is one of the coolest places on earth if you like cool old stuff.  Even if you dislike cars, the story is compelling, t he history lesson is amazing, the cars are extraordinary, and the building itself (the factory 1930's deco showroom) is worth the trip itself.

I only wish it was in my size.  Very nice looking frame.
