I haven't seen fenders and a chain guard in a long time, gotta be a vintage piece.
But, good for you that your feeling that well to do that but, like someone else said, take it easy, Rome wasn't built in a day ya know. Wink

That's quite the ride there Monbla. I always dig vintage bikes. I have a Lespo Standard here in Korea that looks mighty similar. You can see it in the link (and practice your Russian):

I'm pretty sure it weighs more than my car with my family in it. My wife ridicules me for having it because that kind of bike was typically used by vendors for carting around rice. Downhill on it is scary because it picks up speed due to its weight and the brakes...well let's just say there is a reason for the advancements in bike brakes over the years. Uphill...ha! I have to get off and push and then I begin considering abandoning it in any nearby parking lot.

But your bike Monbla, there are more than a few hipsters in Vancouver that would trade their beard for that preserved antique.

Happy riding!
