Here is a nice Repco mixte from Annalise G., one of our faithful Australian OTS contingent, and the photographer of the great cover shot for our DIYPDFOTSGC1112.
I have another OTS for you, if you’re interested. This is a Repco Mixte from the late 1980s I suspect. Alloy rims are a giveaway that it’s not *that* old.
I have replaced quite a few parts in order to make it at least as rideable as a modern hybrid bike. Importantly for you the derailleurs and drive train are still original! Here are the list of renovations:
Changed drop handlebars for ‘sit-up-and-beg’ type Upgraded brakes, brake pads and brake levers Added new grips Replaced saddle Replaced all cable inners Replaced tyres Replaced pedals Added new basket and rack Polished mudguards, stand, derailleurs, gear levers, quill stem Cleaned everything else Adjusted gears Serviced hubs Serviced bottom bracket Serviced headset
