St.Malo to Biarritz...

by Pedal Pedlar May 29, 2012

So, I just made it back from an 8 day, 800k camping trip down the west coast of France on my freshly updated ‘72 Hetchins Vade Mecum. From St Malo to Biarritz. This is the young lady shortly before she was finished. It was a hell of a tricky build, many wouldn’t agree with updating such a classic Marque with such modern components, but I’m all for classic looks with practical components, and I’m happy with the outcome. Sadly on the second day something tragic happened. I’ll leave that for another post…
