Old bikes are nearly always black, I had the desire to change the trend

I restored chrome plating, brakes, fenders, wheels, everything. Then I chose bi-colour instead of classic black and I got rid of chainguard because the three ‘B’ cranckset was so beautiful that it broke my heart to cover it up.
