Sheldon Brown's 1958 Rochet Touring Bike, Image #41 Previous Home Next

The seatstay bridge is probably the most unusual feature of this frame. The brake bolt runs through an elevated section, and there's an integral vertical threaded stud that holds the fender in place. I have never seen diamond reinforcements like this on a bike this old.
