Reich Bike

Just in from Illinois comes this single-speed Barando. It might sound Spanish, but the bicycle is actually German-made (we’re guessing in the 1960’s). This functional little “village” bike (the more traditional form of the modern “townie”) is complete down to its tires and tubes. Aluminum fenders (with its bicycle shop badge still intact), European styled chainguard and intricate decals round out the package.

Note the funky airbrushed highlights around the headtube lugs. We should have thought of this years ago. We could have saved a mint in pinstriping.
