Vintage steel race bike Plum Vainqueur 1976

Plum, a humble bike shop based in Ghent, Belgium, has a great name in cycling and it can look back on a history of over a hundred years.
The shop started in 1910 as "PDS", which referred to its founder's name - Pol Desnerck. A few years later, Pol changed the name to La Plume, French for feather
Sitting in the Flemish heartland of cycling with many classic races and a famous sixday in reach, the shop frequently sponsored teams. And During the 50’s and 60’s the Plum shop became the unofficial hub for pioneering British riders racing in Europe, including Tommy Simpson.

To provide its teams with bikes and to offer a brand of their own, Plum hired frame builders to create a real work horse: The Plum Vainqueur. These bikes became renowned for their reliability and were a popular choice for riders on which even some of the hardest races like Ghent-Wevelgem were won.

And here we present to you a Plum Vainqueur from the 1970s.
This is an unpretentious bike which serves well on the rough roads of Flanders and is a good choice for historic bike races as well. You could, of course, also use it for leisurely weekend rides.

Dag Pierre,

Bedankt voor de informatie, op het frame zaten geen decals meer, op de voorvork kon je nog aan de lak zien dat er ooit een 'P' op gestaan heeft.
Tof dat er reactie's op een artikel komt, als je ergens op de website opmerkingen hebt of extra info laat dit gerust weten.
Misschien tot de volgende!
