The fillet-brazed frame exhibits their expertise in building exceptional tourers in the style of the French constructeur. A blend of old and new, it includes a custom stem and front rack, White Industries and Campagnolo components, and SON lighting.

They also teamed up with French baggage-makers Helmut Equipement for a full set of luggage, perfectly color-matched to the gum wall tires and the gradient paintwork — from the clear coated rear to the gloss black front end.

Even the Silca pump was considered as part of the whole. There’s no doubt about it: taking this machine away for a week or a weekend away, is surely the pinnacle of the passionate long-distance and all-weather rider.
