Bergh-Sport Amsterdam

Hi all,

I recently bought myself a cool vintage Bergh Sport cycle, there is not much known about this particular brand from Amsterdam.
I bought it as showed on the pictures. Although you can see the years, the bike does't got any rust . The frame and fork looks similar to the one from Flicker http://www.flickr.com/photos/46487056@N08/4430349260/
Does someone know more about this bike? Thank you!

Isa

Very very pretty bike in baby blue.

From this site i learn that indeed there is very little know about the brand and the owner of this brand Jaap van den Bergh : http://www.klassiekeracefiets.info/

Try posting this in the Dutch bike thread http://www.bikeforums.net/showthread...dutch+invasion

Maybe there is someone who knows a little bit more

Very nice. I'll have one in 62cm, thank you.

But seriously: it's lovely. Congratulations on the find. Should clean up nicely. Have a look at pullup's baby blue RIH for an artist's impression of what can be achieved with a project like this.

Oh, and welcome to the forum!
