Another shot of the Mafac Racer, originally uploaded by Xvelo Designs.
I just can’t get over how sexy these brakes are. I would say 100% better looking than their properly functioning children Paul’s. I’m going to apply to be the PR/Marketing guy for the Mafac corporation. I sure hope they have an opening!
The bike is 95% done now, it’ll be 100% when I get a brake cable and some chain guard on it. I would have rather gone with a bit nicer components but that’s not what this one is about. It’s about building and riding, weather is nice, time to get the fuck out of the garage and ride.
