What's the top speed of your 2CV?

Kilroy said...

Greetings,

The first words that came to mind when viewing this picture were: "Crash test Dummy".

Best regards

65mph! That's why Perry is wearing the new VO aero helmet.

I will only buy the VO aero helmet if it includes steel wool to remove the gaudy logoing, for that will surely ruin its classical and understated elegance!

so, how was the lateral stiffness of the mixte at speed?

Is that really Jan Heine on the Mixte ?

Does the 2CV plane more or less than the bike ?

Gunnar Berg said...

Jeez. Perry sucking 2-cycle exhaust! You are a hard task master.

Gunner, The 2cv, she is four stroke.

How about checking the tire pressure on the 2CV

patates frites said...

Yep, four-stroke, but only two-cylinder, which explains her blazing performance. Probably lacks any pollution equipment too, so pretty stinky anyhow.

Goon said...

What is this "pollution equipment" of which you speak?

The 2CV, she is designed to be serviced by the average peaseant using only a corkscrew and a rock. Certainly that excludes a (comment ca dit?) "cataclysmic comforter" or whatever . . .

Anonymous said...

just to set the record straight, peasants with corkscrews DO offer "cataclimactic comfort." I am quite surprised at the lack of sophistication as evinced in these comments!

Can you convert the 2CV to 650B?

Anonymous said...

As long as you can get a hold of the right caliper brakes...

Filigree said...

Those photos are priceless! What handlebars are those?

geoffrey said...

NON!

Non. non. non. on NON!

Je ne connais pas 650B! Deaux chevaus ou RIEN!
