I need info about the Jonas Oglaen [the O with a "/" thru it and the letters "AE" are joined] Kombi lux. [I wish I knew how to make Norwegian letters with MSWord.]
I have come into possession of a Folder that was my Mother's. It was bought in the 70's and used very little. I tried looking on eBay and the Oklahoma Bicycle Society's website but found no help there. Can anyone tell me it's age, value and where to get manuals/parts? If not then where can I find out.
Thank you for any help anyone can give me----Terry Stephens
