Collectable Rapha H-Van miniature

The broom wagon, or 'la voiture-balai', was introduced to the Tour de France in 1910, the year the race first went into the high mountains. The broom wagon follows the last rider on the road and when it catches struggling riders, they must climb off their bikes and retire, handing in their race numbers as the van sweeps up the remnants of the peloton. The vintage Citroen ‘H-Van’, a popular model used for such duties, has become a recognisable Rapha ambassador at road races and events around the world. In fact, we now have a fleet of four, acting as reliable service vehicles (most of the time) for Rapha rides and events when, in addition to picking up stragglers, it also serves the finest coffee and food. The Rapha H-Van is also a fixture in Rapha Cycle Clubs worldwide.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good fun This is a cool gift but be forewarned it's not really a toy. There are several details (mirrors & door handles) that are delicate & can come off easily. You still see these in Europe, mostly as vendor trucks but it's a thriving used market with hefty prices for completely restored vehicle. Sitting proudly on my bookcase out of reach of the 8yr old & the 18month old.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely model! Everything I've come to expect from Rapha: exquisite packaging, and top-notch materials used. This delightful Tin Donkey looks the part. And it's a lot bigger than a Dinky toy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unique vintage-style van This is a uniquely cool item. High quality metal construction with functioning side door and rear window, it is reminiscent of metal toys made in the time when this van was used in the Tour. I even bought a second one as a gift for a cycling friend and he was delighted.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's Cool It's not glossy like the one in the photo, it's matte. I got it for a shelf at work. It's cool. Needs a miniature espresso machine. :)
