This old Healing 10 Speed racer came to us with a seized seat post that had to be unceremoniously hacksawed out of the frame (a tedious and delicate job!).

Once the post was free, we stripped the mixte frame bare and left it that way, added a classic moustache handlebar, Brooks leather saddle and swapped the double crankset for a simpler single ring.

The finishing touches were the hammered fenders and vintage styled cable housings and brake levers from Velo Orange. The rest is stock – a classic mix of old Shimano 600, Dia Compe MKS and Araya .

We reckon Mitzy’s a looker.
