Hello everyone, im from Cyprus and i want more info on this beauty. Its a rare find considering its age which is around 1910 i believe. They' ve told me that once there were carrying ammunition with this exact model but i couldnt figure it out. We are trying to restore it for quite some time and now we are looking for spokes (26cm x 3mm width). If anybody knows some history behind or if its possible to find some parts somewhere will be much appreciated! Its similar to this.

Agreed. Quite like a utility bike, even though I don't own one(don't have the space). What do you have planned for it? Good luck whatever it is

You may get help from this site

This trike below does look to have a chassis/ frame the same, exept the front axle/ cart springs are reversed. Got the picture here http://pedal-trikes.blogspot.co.uk/2009 ... rikes.html

You could try this site:

http://www.transportfiets.net/tag/juncker/

All about 'transportfietsen' (transport bikes) that are still popular in the Netherlands and Belgium.

It's in Dutch, but most Dutch people speak good English so maybe you can mail them
with any questions you have.

Good luck,

Johnny
