Quite rarely have I seen R.H. bikes offered on the ebay supermarket, but a very well informed listing on ebay is much, much harder to find these days. I am reposting the listing here along with 39 detailed pictures of the bike, yes 39 posted by the seller. I hope whoever won this bike will at least know what he or she is getting in the mail, precisely. I must admit, I on occasion find myself trapped and very disappointed on the over saturated listing, with photo-shop photos. I hope this kind of detail information appears more often, well for $3K bikes anyway. Alright folks, who is going to get this bike? I know I would if it’s a 53square…

Here is the description from the listing…

Extremely rare R Herse of the late 40s 56,5 cm c to c seat tube, top tube 55,5 cm c to c. Fully chomed model, will need rechroming, but there is no deep pitting, so this should be no problem Vitus tubing as used for the top RHs for 1947/48/49. Blue lining and lettering. The bike is presented in unrestored, uncleaned, barn find authentic condition Pelissier plume (feather) hubs to Mavic 650 rims RH stem (incorrect bolts) Ideale 44 saddle Cyclo RD Originally the bike would have had a single chainring, it would look great with TA/Stronglight and a Martele chainguard (nice braze-ons present) R Herse brakes, Mafac cable hangers possibly original Front carrier nice but non-original, braze-ons and blue losange of paint added to front fork. Similar modification to back dynamo braze-on. Check out the last three photos. Martele mudguards Very nice restoration project, the lugwork on this bike as often on the expensive chrome models is beautifully crisp and sharp, filed down with a lot of skill and man hours. This is one of big differences between a mass-produced bike and a hand-built, but also between a mediocre hand-built and a good one. I hope the photos do justice to the workmanship Postage by priority airmail to US/ Japan/ Australia : 250 euros Payment : Paypal please. I always group postage for separate items. Postage is paid for by the buyer, who becomes the legal owner of the object when it leaves my premices.
