We’re finishing unofficial Blue Bike Week with a fine Deutsch example this Powder Blue Butterfly Gudereit K.G. Special sent by Andrew M. up in da U.P., eh.Â What a great bike, great pie plate,Â great color, great decals, great suicide butterflies, but a not so great riser stem!Â Hey it’s not my bike.Â Andrew, if you want a riser stem, that’s your deal.Â Nothing I say keeps James from sporting his deluxe gel seat cover, so why should it keep you from sporting a nutty riser.
Have fine weekend all, and go ride a crappy bike for a change.
This is my hand-built racer built about 40 years ago in West Germany. The company, Gudereit, is still in business (www.gudereit.de), and a representative of the company confirmed this bicycle is one of theirs. Unfortunately they couldn’t tell me much more than this, but they did say it’s an extremely rare model!
I rebuilt it fully, and I just got it back on the road. What a ride! It’s very nimble and quick; call it the Blue Butterfly, for lack of a better name.
I have many other bikes, which I will post as weather allows.
