Just picked up a really nice Germi: http://www.flickr.com/photos/4128420...7633540129189/. The seller rih1967 has some really, but really nice bikes. I have been tracking his adverts for quite a while and he knows that i am on a quest for some Dutch exotic bikes. His 2 Gazelles are also really awesome. http://www.flickr.com/photos/4128420...7631108534638/ http://www.flickr.com/photos/4128420...7631447367748/. And also this one was really amazing in real life http://www.flickr.com/photos/4128420...7626010449812/ A Dutch Verhoeven. The bike has cyclocross brakes and handlebar shifters. On the pics you cant see its a real stunner.
He has been trading all kind of predominately road bikes, but he also has a fondness for the Dutch racers.. He had such a very cool orange Joco Ronde van Nederland (my size AAAAI) and a cobalt blue Verhoeven with cyclo brakes and steering commanders. These bikes also were both in my size and are from the late 50's, early 60's. These were both really really cool. And then a few Rihs, Joco's, Gazelles (that white is really nice but he still had one very special team of the Gribaldi wow ...) Jabo frame, JNA, Colnago, Eroba, merkcx Kessels frame etc. etc.
But anyway that Germi IMO is truly the most beautiful thing. Along with a Joco Ronde van Europa bike in orange / green / purple with incredibly beautiful chrome lugs and handd painted lines on the tubes and lugs. The number of hours to finish this kind of paintjobs must be staggering. At home he told me he has a special Jabo hangin, I'm curious about that one.
