The wear and tear of this model is the secret to this strong sporting 1950’s look, a deep relationship between the stripped iron parts and the bright blue of the original preserved paint. The detail of the chromed conjunctions of the head tube weathered by time all add to a complete and harmonious look.
Through the continuous relationship between the parts, even the secondary elements such as the Brooks B17 saddle, the rope end grips, iron wheels all find their identity with this chromatic Humber frame also with traces of the rust sneaking out from underneath the paintwork.
