53.5cm Thelen Export De Luxe Classic Sporteif / Town Bike



One cool town bike. Fully equipped with original white plastic mudguards, dynamo lights & even has the original SKS pump.

The paint & chrome are original, and the frame is built with a combination of fillet brazed & lugged construction. It's a really unique bike.

As with all our bikes, it's been fully stripped, inspected & professionally polished & re-built. The frame is straight & true. There are a few tiny knocks & lots of patina all round, but it's been kept original and it's actual a very responsive ride with its original kit. Please inspect the photos for cosmetic condition as we photograph the bikes so you can see the exact condition of the bike before purchasing.
