Description

1930’s Hirondelle retro direct bicycles his and hers models these are both the top quality touring models hence the lighting and racks many thanks to matt for this information. These bikes were discovered in a barn in Normandy in the mid to late 80,s and the story is they were bought as a pair used all over the war and only hidden away all over the allied Normandy landings once these were over they were returned to use the ladies used more than the mans, then eventually stored in the barn in the mid to late 1950’s The ladies is a Hirondelle retro direct totally original in full working order as you’ll see from the pics all of the parts on it are totally correct for the bike even down to the seat it has a nice unrestored patina being 80+ years old’ it has lost one of the vital paint and the nickel plating but this adds to the wonderful thing about it. It is fully functioning and even the dynamo lights work perfectly. The size of the ladies bike is 20 ½ inches centre to top and 22 inches centre to centre from the steerer tube to the seat tube The gentleman’s is a super Hirondelle and is the top of the line model of the day it has oil ports on the pedals crank end wheel spindles etc extra nickel plating.it has an amazing lock on anti theft right hand brake lever. I have had to replace the tyres and grips on this bike as they were totally shot other than that everything is totally correct for this bike and it carries the patina of an 80+ year old bike well. Its in full working order lights included and ready to ride and enjoy. The size of the gentleman’s bike is 22 inches centre to top seat tube and 23 inches centre to centre top tube. These are for sale as a pair as they have all the time been a pair and it’s a shame to spilt them up viewing is welcomed and recommended. More pictures available upon request Please study the pictures as these form a major part of the description and feel free to ask as many questions as you like regarding them. Shipping for the uk is high as these will be shipped complete as a result of their rarity and historic value. But collection is all the time available I will be able to over seas ship but again I will be able to ship them as complete bikes so they’re going to be crated and shipped as a pair so they’re going to be expensive to ship.if the shipping is cheaper I will be able to refund any difference
