Thought I'd share a kwik pik of my new city bike - a new-old-stock Rex Classique 3-speed. Usually 3 speeds have 26-inch wheels. This has 27-inch so the ride is nicer. It's equipped with painted aluminum fenders and chainguard a sweet Wrights leather saddle, a spacious saddlebag, wing nuts on the front wheel, Michelin whitewalls and Sturmey 3-speed hub. All the parts except for the ding-dong bell I added are NOS from when the bike was made by Flying Scot in 1971. Hope you like it.
