1980s HKS
#1
My latest acquisition. Just bought this to use while I'm on a 3 month visit in Berlin. Usually ride an old Peugeot racer, but wanted something more transport oriented for the mellow streets of this city. It's a HKS, probably from early 80's. Anyone know a source for brake shoes for an old Sachs VT hub brake? The shops here all shrug their shoulders.

Don't know where to get those brake pads either, but I'll keep my eyes open.

I really like the look of your bike Dave, it's a classic commuter!
