    Wow. I want that. I can’t believe you got it for $75.

      That was the seller’s asking price. I tried to haggle without success. Turns out to have been a very good deal. I sold it for $400 to a NYC cyclist.

    I keep going to yard sales because of stories like this, but I’ve yet to see something as sweet as this one. From the photos and description it looks and sounds like a quality bike.

  • The Seller

    Van Hauwert was a small bicycle maker in Belgium. Most of his bikes were used by the locals as primary transportation vehicles but he also supplied frames for professional bike racers. This bike was custom made in 1984 and brought back from Europe. I have another made with Columbus SL tubing and short point lugs. It’s equipped with Shimano 600AX group (very short lived attempt at aerodynamic bike components in the early 1980s).
