classic components - reproduced

Vintage Bicycle Press mainly publishes Bicycle Quarterly...
a magazine for avid cyclists, who enjoy their bikes, whether on a weekend ride, commuting, randonneuring, racing or touring the countryside. In Bicycle Quarterly, you find professionally written articles about a variety of topics rarely covered in the "mainstream" cycling press
+ they import some real gems - hard to find cycling components including the two above...

The handlebars are a reproduction of the 1940's Randonneur made in Japan by Nitto and retain subtle bends to allow for long hours on the saddle.

The hammered fenders are a reproduction included in The Golden Age of Handbuilt Bicycles. Made in small quantities in Japan by Honjo.
