Vintage Belgian Bike Derycke

Apart from Cilo vintage bicycle I have a Belgian bike called Derycke.
I did a research few years ago and found these informations and pics of other Derycke bicycle:

"Nuovo 72 rear, plus front, 1st gen. dura ace calipers, s (crown) on replica campy crance, steel, silver, world champs stripes on decals and head badge says belgium.
Frame: Reynolds 531 stickers on downtube and fork blades, lugs at the top and bottom of head tube, but DT-to-HT, TT-to-HT and BB joints were fillet brazed. Brazed-on cable guides all over the place, brazed-on rear rack and fender mounts, several other tabs brazed on as well. Number "292" stamped on rear of fork crown. Forged Zeus front dropouts, rear drops were no-name stamped metal. Frame and fork had heavily patina-ed black paint with wonderful gold pinstripes outlining.

Wheels: rear hub SA 3-speed dated 66-11. Front hub "Boston". Rims aluminum Weinmann.
CURANA mudgards: front and rear
Bars and stem: Douglas
Crank: EAPILUX or FAPILUX, Belro Depsey chain guard
Brakes: MAFAC Dural forge
"1163 CH DE WATERLOO BRUSSELLES" on downtube.
I'm guessing it was made in Brussels in about 1966."

My Derycke bike looks like this one's twin brother. I bought it in Belgium. Must been quite popular there at the time. I'll add some pics of my bike ASAP.


"Germain Derycke (born Bellegem, 2 November 1929 - died Kortrijk, 13 January 1978) was a Belgian road bicycle racer. Derycke was a classics specialist. In his second year as a professional he came second in Liège-Bastogne-Liège. In 1953 he won Paris-Roubaix. He twice stood on the podium at the world road race championship, second to Fausto Coppi in 1953 and third in 1955 behind Stan Ockers and Jean-Pierre Schmitz."
