Hello everyone, im from Cyprus and i want more info on this beauty. Ιts 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.

Looks to be a heavyweight beast. What are you plans for it?

i should imagine who ever had to pedal it must have been an extremely strong chap, i doubt if it was on rough terrain. But who knows the power of adrenalin in the heat of battle ! GOOD LUCK

Be sure that their weight would be nothing for it. It can hold up to a ton, no joke..!
