48cm Lapebie Vintage Road Bike



A wee racer from Lapebie. It's typically French, with classic kit from Mafac, Simplex & Pivo as we see on many of these mid-range road bikes. In it's original white enamel, with gold lug lining from a rather unsteady hand (as we said... typically French!).

An original bike in used condition, the paintwork is quite tired & there have been touch-ups, but we keep the bikes bearing their original paint, full of character from the riding over the years. As with all our bikes, it's been fully stripped, inspected & professionally polished & re-built. The frame is straight & true without any dents or dings - please inspect the photos for cosmetic condition as we photograph the bikes so you can see the exact condition of the bike before purchasing.
