3rd post, sorry :oops:

I found another Dutch website: http://www.classical-bicycles.com/index.htm

Senry should like that. The guy talks about shellacking handlebars tape, cotton but when you shellac, it actually can work with all kinds of fabrics, be creative.

You'd really have to live in a place with a lot of rain or ride your bikes many miles/kilometres a day to wear out handlebar tape. I don't see what the big deal is. Maybe if you lived somewhere where it rained like it does in Seattle it might be of use.

O, Holland is a place with a lot of rain, I can garantee you that!
But I still like to do that once, with the shellack on the handlebars. It should be 50's bike or so. Seems really classy!
The website I did know, yes, but thanks anyway. This guy really has some rare names in his stable. He seems one of the only (that is easy to find on the net) that has such a vast collection of smaller dutch builders.

Almost forgot, the headbadge on my bike is the only sticker I left from the AGU sport labeling. I am not really sure why I left it. Frame serial is # DH01794, if that would help someone.
