Martin O. in Malmö, Sweden sent in this gorgeous NOS 1986 Crescent Fashion Line 316. Fashion Line indeed! I’ve said it a thousand times, and I’ll say it again: the absolute best looking OTS were produced between 1980 and 1987! This Crescent serves as yet another example of such sweetness.
My name is Martin O. I live in Malmö, the fixie capitol of Sweden. Here is my 1986 Crescent Fashion Line 316, a bike that has about ten times the speed of the average bike in this town.
I came across this bike a couple of weeks ago. I spotted it through the window of a closed down bike shop, brand new and twentyfive years old. It took me about two hours of persuasion to get the owner of the store to let me in and try the bike. He really didn’t want to sell it to me, instead he recommended me to buy a modern seven speed bike in another shop and also suggested I was maybe too short to ride this bike.
Finally I was allowed to buy the bike from the unwilling old salesman. I’m hesitating on how I’m supposed to use it. I guess It’ll be my weekend ride. Here it is, hope you like it!
