Description

By Hetchins’ standards, this 1966 Vede Mecum is a relatively understated frame, but one that oozes class. The workmanship and finishing, is second to none, and the colourway even more stunning up close. Superbly balanced with a stiff rear triangle making it wonderfully responsive with the power down, a neutral front end offering agility in a tight spot but comfort over a long day, and pliability over rougher terrain and mounting points for mudguards and luggage meaning it's well suited to full days out. The build sacrifices neither form nor function to the other - staying true to the aesthetic and spirit of the original machine. A composite of continental parts: Italian gears (Campagnolo) and brakes (Universal), French crankset (Durax) and Bottom Bracket (TA), Belgian cockpit (Titan) and British saddle (Wrights). Wonderful original paint and chrome work; some marks commensurate with age.
