Karl-Heinz Lüders was the premiere german frame builder of his time, dedicating his expertise in steel hand built frames. Inspired by the legendary frame builder Faliero Masi, his creations brought hundreds of World Championship wins and Olympic Golds to his loyal riders. All of his frames were constructed with precision & painted in his legendary West Berlin shop. This example, a ladies step-through frame, is truly one of a kind. Internal gearing and discrete front and rear dynamo lighting make this perfect for fuss free city riding, with looks that will be sure to turn heads. Built up by Lüders himself, the attention to detail is a testament to his ingenuity and perfectionism.
The frame is painted in an elegant fire metallic red, with white decals. The gorgeous fork crown has two fine gold painted Lüders prancing horse motifs. Stiff rear brake bridge and chainstays. Beefy round-section chainstays that were state of the art for their time. Tidy slotted cable guides under the bottom bracket shell. Tubing joints filed smooth on the inside of the frame. His frames weren’t flashy; but finely crafted, robust frames that were built to last. Numerous professional riders won German Championships on his made-to-measure frame sets, as indicated by the band of flags around the seat tube.
