Urban Bicycle

My wife loves old bicycles same as I do. So we started to look
and tried to find a used vintage bike to pimp.
A friend finally found his sister's bike, from the early seventies,
in his dad's shed.

I decided to disassemble every single part and rebuild it with
a totally new urban style look. Since it was the wish of my wife,
I used a matt baby blue for the frame and the mud guards.

Most of the parts were replaced with nicer
and more functional accessories. At least
my love was delighted when she saw it
and I think it is a cool
urban cruiser

The Lucky Found Rollei 35 S

The Lucky Found

This blog is about a passion for old and vintage gadgets and devices.
It's not about brands, it's more about the beautyof the item itself.
That is why i'd like to place here some lucky founds of mine and prefer
to show these, sometimes rare beauties, in pictures.

My first piece i'd like to present is as well my latest. I'm talking about 
a Rollei 35 S mechanical Photo camera from the late 60ies.

With this cam i was super lucky, found it in a second hand store

for only 10 Swiss Francs. Only works, of course if  they dont know
what they're actually

The amazing thing is that this cam has about the size of a pack of
cigarettes.....not bad for a fully mechanical camera.

I don't want to talk much about the features, just enjoy looking at it.
