More vintage bike porn

I came across this beautifully restored vintage Dursley Pedersen. Aside from the unusual frame design I like the overbuilt fork "crown" and the brass bottom bracket shell with oil port. That must've been tough to braze.





The whole design is rather baroque, quite unlike the spare pragmatic elegance of the Rene Herse tourer I posted earlier. Surprisingly such things are still produced.

That's an interesting looking bike.

Very unusual, but seemingly sturdy construction.
