The Bike Feature, Jacques rusted ride supreme.


Here for your enjoyment is a new feature: The Bike Feature. I’ll be posting featured bikes every so often in order to inspire and showcase some nice rides. On with the show!

Our first subject resides in Montreal Canada and is ridden 12 months a Year in one of the most unfriendly weather you can find. Jacques found the steel lugged road frame in the garbage. It was stripped of its paint and had a crack on the top of the seat tube. Hopes and dreams of a nice project once crushed by metal fatigue now motivated Jacques to get out is welder, fix the problem and make is it his own.



Jacques found that the rusting frame of unknown origin looked kind of nice as is and decided to locate a fork that he stripped in order to match the rest of the bike. He then fabricated an industrial strength rack for the front that he also decided to leave on bare metal. I like the little hearts, makes for a nice touch. Jacques says he can carry almost anything on that rack and I believe it.



The bike runs on a Sachs internal 5 speed coaster brake hub, fenders and a pair of classic moustache handle bars. It sees service on a regular basis in all types of weather. This is one of the coolest city bikes I have ever seen. 

Don't forget to check out the how-to articles post
and download my free bike maintenance book if you haven't already.



Until next time, ride safe and free.
