Jo Routens Restoration

A Routens bicycle restored in the Bicycle Specialties – Mariposa Bicycles workshop. The carrier, decaleur and bags support were made in the workshop. We fixed the stem and the frame (replaced the chainstay and brazed on the front derailleur tubes) and fork (which was bent). The frame was then painted in the workshop. With a good stock of vintage parts, and over half a century of knowledge, we can fix up many old bikes. Currently we are working a similar Routens which required even more work, including a replica front derailleur.
