I had our Citroen 2CV at the VO shop today. So I snapped a few pics of the newly built-up Pass Hunter leaning against it. Not very good photos really, but I like the contrast. I'll take some proper ones soon.
It took me a long time to figure out how to build up this bike. I almost went with flat bars like this Toei Pass Hunter. Then I though about fenders, like this Alps or this one. In the end it was a compromise. The great thing being at VO is that I can always switch out the parts.
Here is a link to a post about the frame. These are the official pass hunting rules. And here is a cool Japanese site.
I think the VO Pass Hunter will do better in the hills than the 29hp, 600cc-engined Citroen.
