The Ascari City is the pinnacle of vintage styling and practicality. The City's "step-through" frame gives you elegant styling and the benefits of a bike that is easy to mount or dismount. The City comes equipt with 3 speeds, drum brakes, painted to match racks and fenders, and dynamo powered head and tail lamp.
