The Requirement

This Classic Puch single speed bike was stripped back to the frame, the frame re-sprayed and componentry renovated to new condition. The Pelissier and Campagnolo hubs from the original were in good order just oxidised so rather dull looking. However the rims and spokes were beyond repair. The requirement was to make the wheels look close to the original specification. Budget was £260 for the completed wheels.

The solution

Mavic Reflex rim was chosen as it had a its low profile look that complimented the classic frame. The original hubs were stripped down, bearings regreased, and hand polished.  Continental Giro black and tan tubular 22mm tyres were stuck to the rim to complete the retro style for the rebuild.
