Potential buyers must come and view and test ride the bicycles in person and I will only entertain offers on bicycles from local purchasers unless we have a positive prior relationship.
Our shop is located in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.
All of the mechanical work and wheel building has been done by myself unless otherwise noted, newly built wheels come with a limited lifetime guarantee just as if you had ordered a custom wheelset.
I will ship parts at the real cost of postage / insurance to any location but do note that overseas shipping can be very expensive.
This incredibly beautiful 1946 Magneet was purchased after World War Two and is being offered through RBF Cycles by it’s original owner, Magneet no longer exists as a manufacturer as they were absorbed by Batavus in the 1960’s but the parts are standard so replacements and spares are not hard to acquire.
He told me that he bought this bicycle for his girlfriend who then became his wife, they brought the bicycle to Canada when they emigrated.
An interesting detail is that before it came to Canada the rear wheel was upgraded (perhaps accidentally) to a 4 speed internal with an alloy hub shell, this is a rather rare hub.
The bicycle is being sold as is and only needs a small amount of work and has been checked over and rides out beautifully, it could use new tyres. We have also replaced the damaged headlight with a matching spare.
Chris King disc hubset – $550.00
These exemplary hubs (36 spoke) were laced once, spacing is 135 rear and 100mm front, and would provide the base for a wheelset that would take you many tens of thousands of kilometres.
The m.s.r.p. is close to $900.00 so this is a spectacular deal on the best cassette hubs on the market and we would be happy to build them into a wheelset of your choice.
