1993 Herman Braun track.

The wow factor is big on this Herman Braun trackbike. A stunning paintjob which made me instantly think of another dutch man, named Herman Brood. It looks like it has been done with a sponge and i think it looks amazing :) . . Herman Braun started his business in 1983. . Herman built his own bicycles since 1983 under the brand name Herman BRAUN, formerly located at the Elementenweg in Spijkenisse, Holland. Herman is very well introduced in the cycling world. As an aspirant he started at PRC Delta in 1969, then he cycled to 1972 as a novice. In 1972, as a 16-year-old, he started as a mechanic for the famous cycling team of Kees Pellers in the tour of Spain. He was also involved in the military cycling team for 3 years, culminating in the world championships in Italy. In 1977, Herman moved to the Gazelle cycling team, which drove upcoming talents such as Jean Paul van Poppel and Eric Breukink. At the end of 1985, Herman stopped as a mechanic to be able to focus entirely on his own company and to continue growing. From 18 September 2010, Braun Cycling is based at the Theemsweg 13 in Spijkenisse. In the state-of-the-art workshop Herman has received an excellent partner in his son Dave. Dave is developing rapidly as a very skilled frame builder. The passion and inspiration of son Dave continually invests in new machines to design and build high-tech bicycle frames. Now, however, an even lighter and stronger material especially lightweight steel and titanium. Meanwhile they have the most modern frame construction factory in the Netherlands. Where competition is now building everything in low-wage countries, they adhere to the Dutch artisanal quality, service and guarantee. As a result, everything is handmade and the wishes of the customer are central. Together they form a close team that has returned many cyclists to the cycling pleasure. The pleasure that Herman and Dave radiate when building frames is reflected in the top quality of their products. . This frame was custom made for a Dutch pro Remco Lok i bought this frame from him after he told me that he had to quit cycling because of a illness. . You can notice his name is engraved in the stem. 60,5cm center center 62cm center top 57,5cm top tube
