Hi Peter,

Lush rides. All of them. I guess you're also the man behind the pedro and bartoli site? Why not put up the Batavus also? ..and the Union?

My own Koga Pro Am has been the ride I made most miles on last couple of summers. Pro Am stands for Professional Amateur. It is a semi professional offering by Koga. My Pro Am is the '84 model. Yours look to be a '83. The Pro Am was available as framekit only. Did you (or a previous owner) strip the paint from the tail? I know they are chromed underneath, but I never saw one with unpainted tail.

For them interested: From my own experience I can say the Pro Am is an enjoyable ride. It is a nimble handling bike and I always feel secure on it, no matter whether cobble stones or challenging cornering. It offers not the lively ride my Jan de Reus has, but the Reus is actually in a class of its own.

Nice features of the Pro Am are lush details, excellent coat and built with Lexus-like precission. Of course the FullPro is a step up when you want a lighter tubing and even more lush details, but that would also involve more money and during live something has to be desired :wink:

Good luck with the sale!

hi! yes that's me.

thanks for the info on the koga! it's one of the nicest bikes i've seen and i can fully imagine riding around on it (if my legs were shorter). and indeed, the previous owner stripped the blue paint from the rear stays. it wasn't done very nicely and the bike was in a general sorry state so i put in a lot of polishing and detailing, and put on the gold bands to match the decals.

i wasn't sure about being allowed to mention our site (http://www.piedrobartolo.com) as well, so i just put up these bikes i had on 'the other forum' but the sales fell through somehow. another member pointed me here.

these are the bikes we have for sale at the moment, besides the other 3:

Batavus professional

Merida vintage sports tourer

Image

Colner (made by Colnago)

Image

Casati

Image

Scanabissi Special

Image

Union Rini Wagtmans (MOTTA built!)

Yes, you can mention your site.

Maybe you should show the Bat with the greyish tyres. Imo it is a great looker with the setup.

I do not yet have an Union Wagtmans
