1975 SWB Road Bike

Short Wheel Base Road Bike
Southend, ca. 1975

This road bike features long-point lugs, slightly drilled. The frame geometry has fastback stays and a dimpled seat tube giving a short wheel base. A single tunnel under the bottom bracket indicates that the bike was intended for 5-sp only. It is finished in royal blue with gold head tube, gold and white trim, original transfers. It may be plain by Hetchin's standards, but it is very pleasing nonetheless.

Components are mixed.
