1950’s Gillott Path Racer (restored)

We were asked to build a single speed/ fixed gear bike as a birthday present for a very lucky customer. The Gillott was the only real option, a stunning 50’s path racer built by a true legend. To keep things as classic as possible we handbuilt a pair of 27″ flip-flop wheels that would look the part whilst being study enough to go through London on a regular basis. Matching them with Panaracer Pasela’s was a no brainer. The Brooks leather saddle and bar tape provide the right look, feel and quality to match the frame whilst the Izumi track chain adds a discreet bit of gold to match the lining around the lugs. Happy Birthday!
