Going Dutch

Tony Raynor

Need for steeds
heres my latest find. Had to travel north of the border for this one. It's a really nice looking bike that needs a good clean and service.

Has full shimano 105 gear, Ishiwata EX triple butted Frame and Tange champion chrome forks. Haven't had time to have a real good look but it almost sent a tingling sensation up my arm when I picked it up.

Going to try and get in touch with the frame builder in Holland to see if I can get any further info.

Only downside is the frame is large. I'm really thinking of getting my legs stretched.

Quick clean and it's not too bad. There are some scuffs and a few spots of rust just starting to show. Got the wheels cleaned and back on.

The bad point for me is it is just too big. I can just stand over the crossbar on tip toes. I did manage a mile or two on it but just didn't feel safe at junctions. I'm totally gutted atm. Need to have a think what to do.
