Yes this is a polo blog, but- as my little corner of the web- it's also a repository for all bike related awesomeness. And there's nothing more awesome than a vintage Rene Herse. This is from a fantastic book i found at the local library called "the Golden Age of Handbuilt Bicycles". While it primarily focuses on the French constructeurs that's quite alright with me! Polo, peugeots, and poverty seem to be my favorite themes around here. I have a few more i scanned that i'll post at a later time, but for now I hope you enjoy these photos as much as i do.
EDIT: I'd like to respectably acknowledge that these photos were take by J.P. Praderes, who does extremely high quality photography of bicycles, motorcyles and more. Check out his site at jppraderes.com
