Bicycles can be many things, but in the hands of the right artisans, they can be rolling art forms. Case in point: The Charleston Bicycle by The Brothers Rich. Built on a vintage Raleigh DL-1 frame, the Charleston has been fully restored to present day glory, boasting an assortment of modern components while maintaining a vintage, minimalistic aesthetic. Some of the components utilized include 28×1-1/2″ Westwood style steel rims, Ralson Creme tires, a Velo Orange Grand Cru fixed 32h front hub, a Sturmey Archer S2C 2 speed 36h rear hub, a Velo Orange MK1 Grand Cru crankset and a Brooks B-17 Flyer Special saddle. Because they’re custom built, availability is limited and pricing varies on the particular build, so so your best bet is to check with them for the specifics of both.
