Has anyone owned a Hollandia?

I'm especially interested in this model, which I'm seriously considering buying.

That's a heavy bike, about 38lbs, not really any lighter than non-aluminum. The three piece crank is a nice feature, it looks to be identical to the one used on Next brand cruisers (walmart).
It's got everything you need, except lights & tire liners. Excellent value.
I'd prefer a better removable front basket and a rear rack that will take accessories, but I'm splitting hairs. The wheels look like no-name cheapies. I'd keep rider weight to under 240-250lbs.
