Ever worried that this Koga thing might have become an obsession?

:wink:

Looks a good event, I'd like to go but it's a bit to far! Is it only Dutch bikes that are displayed or bikes from anywhere?

A bit like our own 'Classic Bicycle Display' on April 19 between Halifax and Bradford. This year its specialist subject is 'Yorkshire Frame Builders' - but we'll accept anything in general.

Hi Ned,

No, not only Dutch roadbikes! It is for roadbikes from all origins. I am really looking forward.

@lgf
Yes, of course I am obsessed. I am more or less obsessed by fine flawless Japanese and pragmatic Dutch bikes in general. Of course I am aware that, for example, the Italians made bikes with unmatched historical significance, but why being an orphanage for them while everybody else is already taking good care of them :) Love Masis, Cinellis & co none the less.

Due to camera hassle most pics are messed up, but I got a few acceptable ones to give you an idea >>>

Image
1951 JaBo (Jasper Bouma) trackbike. One of the show toppers if you ask me.


Image
mint Masi Prestige with 50th anni. Another show topper.


Image
Gazelle Champion Mondial 753 with -again- 50th anni


Image
Concorde (TVT frame)


Image
Peugeot PY10


Image
Colnago. I think Colnago was the most represented of all brands.


Image
Eddy Merckx


Image
Olmo & Schauff. Underlaying chrome shines through topcoat - nice effect.


It was quite crowded with visitors and stands selling parts and frames. As it was held not very far from the German border, what is for a substantial part the reason why there were so many Germans attendants. One of them came with a beatifull OSI sports car (parked outside)

The brakes on the Koga (second picture from the top), are they the same as these:

If so, it looks as if you need a braze on specific frame? Good job I haven't put a bid in!

The ax brakes work with any standard frame. No special brazeons needed. Look great but imo are awful to set up well.
