Beautiful! Nice restauration

Beautiful! Nice restauration work too. I recently acquired a Follis frameset of similar vintage, this really inspires me to get on with the restauration!


Check out my Follis Mixte that I redid this summer. It turned out sweet!


The picture of bike leaning of Fence was taken when I rode the Blue Ridge Park Way. It was wonderful ride. No trucks allowed, lower speed limits, and mostly good roads compared to riding the roads here in Indiana. (Just watch out for the RV's)

one-owner follis!

you have owned yours a few years longer than i have owned mine. nice job on the preservation, i can see why it's your favorite!


Cool to see someone who is able to preserve/restore old bicycles.

Awesome! Cool to see someone

Awesome! Cool to see someone from Indiana. I'd like to do a Kentucky tour this year, sounds fun.
