This was a junker I bought from my local bike repair guy. It was factory-built in the mid-70s (Italy, I think) for Condor of London, though unlike the real Condor it was mass-produced for export. I call it the "Eurotrash" because, except for Phil Wood hubs, it is built from the old French and Italian bits in my spare parts bin. And it has lots of flashy chrome. It rides wonderfully and now has a nice olive-green Carradice Camper Longflap hanging behind the Brooks Champion Special.
