Pony’s HANS LUTZ 4-centuries

Hans Lutz – loco pony´s sunny sunday afternoon build: Gimme Some More!!

The now shiny lugged steel tubing by Hans Lutz (use google or search engine of choice) was carefully aged and yielded it´s natural sunburst (presumably) in some backyard over the years. Luckily, these pipes received a full chromium coating (most likely before beeing bedded in that mentioned backyard) that potentially enabeld this supernatural finish. And yes, some ellbow grease might has contributed as well. The rest is pure “madness” or maby not so much and in the end bike actually “makes sense”?

It´s a blast to ride and the old-and-wise frameset does not only look good but holds some serious pieces of equipment taken from several centuries of cycling.
