VELOS REMY SPORT SAUWENS?

Postby NATURAL ANKLING » 30 Jul 2019, 9:25am

Hi,
I think it's Belgium?
Will try and get more details later.
Tubs, 26 inch?
24 inch frame.
Close ratio block?

Mate wants to do a trade I think :)

Does anybody have any other details about how to make/year et cetera, thanks.
Google has very limited information if none at all.

Hi,
Well it's not a well-known brand make is it.
So it's only worth what the parts are worth.
I will have to go and look at it in the flesh.
And I think you wants more out of me than I'm willing to give for the bike.

A Google search for Sauwens reveals somewhat more. 531, low/mid range European equipment. One in much better equipment sold on an auction site for £95. Tubs are not 26 ", the rims are the same diameter as 700C.

What clown runs a dynamo on tubs!

Hi,
Yes, it's not going to be high value high quality bike unless it had a name attached to it.
I did see that advert on Google.
I am only going at the moment on what someone told me I've not seen the bike in the flesh.
26 inch made me think, because He also describes the tubs?
Not sure it's lovely good to me, but this sort of stuff it's becoming more fashionable to lean up against cafés.

Bigjim of this parish started a thread a while back bemoaning the fact that quality steel bikes were going for a song.
So unless it's collectable or has a famous name attached to it by association,etc,which I doubt,it doesn't look as if it's worth much really.

hi,
Yes, even if it had a name and it was later with a cassette they're not really worth a lot considering how many bikes are knocking around.
I was offered something similar for free awhile back, I declined as I had no use for it.
