Mistinguett is a beautiful French-styled city bike for a beautiful frenchwoman who now makes her home in Boston. Lugged, silver-brazed frame, low-trail fork, Dia-Compe inverse-mounted brake levers, Ambrosio "Reine du Nord" tubular rims laced onto gorgeous Curtis Odom high flange hubs. A Nitto Technomic extra-tall stem with Velo Orange Belleville handlebars gives the step-through frame an elegant upright riding position.

The original Mistinguett, above, was a Parisian cabaret star of the turn of the century, famous for her oddly compelling voice and streetwise accent.
