Today’s 10-Speed treat in courtesy of Timothy J. This OTSG First is a French built Sutter 10-Speed.
Here is one perhaps few visitors to the site have seen. This is a Sutter from the 1970’s, not sure of the year and is unapologetically all French right down to frame pump colors and the 531 stickers in French. I have no information on it perhaps someone might know something about it. It is awaiting restoration; these pictures were taken before disassembly. Although the bike was rideable when I got it, the thing was just too darn small for me to try out. As received it has the wrong crankset but I have the right Stronglight 49D’s for it. The stem is frozen solid and will have to be drilled out. Fortunately I also have a proper replacement Beleri stem when I get to that point.
Thanks again Timothy
