Uwe Scheufen and his Studio Brisant are located in Münster, Germany, about 300 miles from Berlin — where Fashion Week is just about to wrap up. There would have been plenty of mirror-gazing going on there but Studio Brisant’s chromed road bike is a mirror of more worthy reflection.
Studio Brisant has been restoring, modifying and selling classic road bikes in Münster since 2009. Recently, Uwe has collaborated with a British frame builder to release a proprietary line of lugged steel frames — a track and road model, while a randonneur is still in the works.
This example of the road frame has been built up with a high-polished NOS Campgnolo gruppo, the legendary and desirable Croce d’Aune brake calipers book-ending the bike. The frames are built with Reynolds 631 and are available for purchase, along with all Studio Brisant project bikes, through the website — contact Uwe for details. There’s more photos of this beautiful bike on their flickr page.
