Classic Vintage Steeel City Bicycle
Pilen Lyx is a Swedish-built stylish and durable classic steel roadster utility city bicycle. A pragmatic romantic vintage bicycle with comfortable upright riding position. The Lyx features an extraordinarily comfortable ride that you simply have to experience.
The Pilen bikes are painstakingly designed in the smallest detail, resistant to rust and environmentally friendly painted. The steel frame is TIG-welded in chromium-molybdenum SAE 4130 and has brazed details. Function and form comes together in carefree maintenance and classical elegance. Are you ready to fall in love?
Truth be told, we sell precious few bicycles as standards compared to the number of Specials that rolls out the factory door. A good bike is something you should enjoy, feel proud of and have a good relationship with – aesthetically, technically and economically. That’s why Pilen embraces the customers’ creativity. It makes sense for everyone involved. The customer gets his personal Pilen to enjoy and Pilen gets to sell more beautiful Pilen bikes.
The Lyx Special is a Lyx where you have selected paint job and parts to your own liking. Single colour bicycles with white or brown tyres are popular. You kan choose:
You must order a Lyx Special though your Pilen retailer. Some delivery time might apply.
The Pilen costs a little more because it is much more bike. The prices are competitive and the bikes are good value when you compare what you get. The lovely driving experience, quality of the frame, the fine bottom bracket, the leather saddles and the thoughtful design give you many carefree, joyful years of ownership. For customers outside Sweden shipping, currency exchange rates and customs are factors. If you can’t convince a local bike shop to stock Pilen you can send us a message and we’ll offer you a quote.
