#sendusyourbike | Joel - The heritage of french racing

Happy "bluemonday" riders!
Our friend Cèdric from Cycles Lelapin has sent us their last creation called "Joel". Result of a long work of restoration and assembly, They are really happy to introduce us "Joel", the third bicycle created by Lelapin. Belonging to Joel, a French craftsman roofer based in Alsace, France who then offered it to his son, "Joel" is based on a vintage Vitus Motobecane frame that now wear the famous French Blue and many aesthetic details honoring Gordini and other Matra race cars of its time. Mixing vintage pieces and modern accessories "Joel" has been turned into a lightweight and sporty bicycle in the true racing spirit.
