Description

The history of the Monark brand (which still exists) reaches back to as early as 1908, when it was founded in Sweden. For a quite a while, it was very closely bound with another major Swedish brand - Crescent. In the 1960s and early 1970s, these two companies existed alongside each other and their models differed mainly by the components they used and the paint job.

The Monark brand was also successful in the racing field, when the brothers Gösta and Thomas Pettersson rode the blue Monarks to victory in 1967, 1968 and 1969 world championships team time trial. The brand became widely popular not only for their bicycles but also for their motorbikes.

And here is one of those bikes stemming from the late 1950s - the Monark Blå Blixten Racer. It comes in a typical blue paintjob. The frame is made of Reynolds 531 butted tubing, regarded by some as the best material of the time. The tubes are then connected by the beautiful Nervex Professional lugs, which are in this case further highlighted by the red paint. The fully chromed fork is also an interesting one. It's twin plate crown makes it more robust yet very elegant at the same time.

Regarding the componentry, you will find Campagnolo Gran Sport shifting, Universal Extra brakes and Campagnolo hubs laced with aluminium fine Weinmann rims. 

The bike is serviced and ready to be ridden. If you are looking for a very fine bicycle for L'Eroica you will certainly make a good choice with this one.

Condition Used
The bicycle is in good condition. The frame has no cracks, no dents and is not bent. The paintwork and decals are all original with some scratches and other normal signs of usage. All parts have been checked and are working fine. The bicycle went through a full checkup at Steel Vintage Bikes workshop! All parts were disassembled, cleaned and re-assembled again. The frame was checked for structural integrity and all wearing parts were replaced with new ones. You can expect the bicycle in fantastic riding condition and ready to go for your vintage bike ride.
