On the way…

Thomas’ Gartner Select

A love story …

I spoke about this project a while back and finally this year I completed this project.

Thomas bought this bicycle with the first earned money back in the early 80ies. He used this quite a while and later then he stored this bike in his garage.

The best thing he could do – limited humidity – some dust and some dirt. But the material is great. As it always was when you spend your money in quality products.

Thomas had some wishes to be done … clincher wheels vs the tubulars he had. Some parts of course needed a lot of treatment. Even the hubs got new bearings.

Some polish and some more polish later the frame and the other parts got shiny and look now almost like new.

Have a look and enjoy …

PS: A love story needs an happy ending … this story has one.
