Federal Cycles Light Tourer

Federal Cycles Randonneur

There are thousands and thousands of bicycles in Indonesia, produced by a handful of manufacturers whose focus is more on international export than aesthetics or ride quality. Before being slapped with an anti-dumping sanction, Federal Cycles Mustika churned out millions of mediocre bikes but this light tourer is an example of reliable and functional beauty.

Arif Ahadiyanto is a passionate Surabayan cyclist who both enjoys riding and reinvigorating old Federal Cycles. He assembled this model from mostly second hand parts and a lick of rust-proofing paint. Constructed from steel tubing that will last longer than Arif, it’s a fine illustration of the fact that you don’t require a massive budget to maintain a beautiful bicycle.
