For those who say flashy items have no substance: look no further than the newest porteur bicycle from Yorkshire based design firm Detail to disprove your theory. Working from a reclaimed, 70′s era Carlton Frame, the firm stalked eBay in search of additional parts, including a beautiful copper riveted Brooks Swift seat and Kampool break pads. Add in some aluminum fenders, an elegant oak-paneled rack and leather cable straps and you’ve got a pretty impressive ragtag porteur bike. But the chrome isn’t the only shiny element: two vintage, LED retro-fitted lights on the front and rear provide some more flair without foregoing substance.
