    Unknown something that needs a name.

    Too short, and I also think it might not be a good thing for my fat... you-know-what :21: In the meantime - took it for a spin to my work today - rides... I don't know. Acceleration is mediocre, speed is not that great, but it's so much fun on the gravel! Also installed some new stuff: The...

    BO15 Carcass

    Nope - That's a pressed in BB. If you move those plastic cups, You won't put them back in there :confused: One of the first attempts of Batavus/Gazelle/Sparta on making bikes with single-use parts.

    Bad Ebay bike deals.

    Actually their fine, it's just the perspective of the photo :wink1: Eyup! They are. Right now I'm making LED light conversions for it, and still working on the front brake. Would love to install classic track dropbars on it, the only problem is that I can't find them cheap. Also a must-need...

    Unknown something that needs a name.

    Got this bike last year in a very horrible shape. At first I tried to identify it. My first guess was a Sturmer from the 40's... But then it came out, that only the fenders are from a ladies Sturmer... Next Guess, by the pedals, that it must be a WWII Nazi military bicycle - the...

    Beautiful bike.

    There's a guy here in Poland... I bet he has one... or two, or at least knows what brand it is :21: The guy is a total guru when it comes to old bikes, and has tons of them (also tons of money, since he recently bought an 80's Bianchi Vento as a "daily bike"). It works in most cases like this...

    I had an idea to use very thin steel that is normally used for this style of doors: I made a tank out of this kind of steel for my electric ZZR Pionier: Super easy to work with, cause you only need metal cutting scissors, and sandpaper.

    BO15 Emsbroek & Poesse Ratracer (pg4, more mockup pictures)

    I was going to ask if it's a holster for a Tokariev pistol (also known as TT). :21: Looks very simmilar, both in size & style.

    Cheap American 10 speeds with cottered cranks.

    Square taper was a standard in most European bicycles in the 30's
