The Return of the Pinot Express!

Jack Gabus built up this bike for his wife. It was refinished with an unacceptable paint job and then languished, first at the painter, and then in the Gabus garage. Mr.Gabus eventually found time in his busy schedule to get it built up. This is an unusual McLean in that it has cantilever brakes. When he purchased it it had the headset, BB, crankset and the dérailleurs. The Mafac brakes were picked up on Ebay. The painter built the neat little custom rear rack.
