Default Re: A Mixte framed motorised bicycle for a lady.

We've had a number of step-through bikes converted, but I can't recall any quite like your Mixte frame, which is resulting in both a very tidy looking & strong build - I can't wait to see it completed!

As you're familiar with the "classic English ladies frames" I'm sure you've seen the skirt/coat guards that some, particularly the vintage ones came equipped with. As you're planning to ride in a full dress at the greater speeds of motorized bicycling, have you considered fitting the Mixte with them?

They come in a wide variety of styles, from vintage steel to modern netting & as I'm particularly fond of greatcoats, I've considered them myself
