Hurtu safety bicycle c 1895

This French Hurtu diamond frame safety dates around 1895 and has nice rims for pneumatic tires.
Most interesting detail is the way of chain tensioning at the rear axle. Wonderful construction!

Look at the page about the older Hurtu on my site, it tells a bit more about this French factory.
