Recently finished building this single speed Porteur bike. It used to be a metallic blue 70’s “Nashbar” mail order special ten speed. All those old French Porteur bikes in a previous post (scroll down a bunch) kinda got me jonesing to build one. Still need to get some green leather bar tape for it. This is my first bike with Cantilever Brakes. I like em! many thanks to Velo-Orange.com for all their bits! There is some buzz about Velo Orange maybe opening a West Coast shop here in San Luis Obispo.
