Gustav Erenpreis Bicycles, Riga - where are they in the world?

My grandfather, Gustavs Erenpreis produced bicycles in Riga, Latvia but fled to Germany with the Russian Occupation of Latvia. I never met him but am curious to know where his bikes are now in the world? Anybody got one, or now where they are? Are there any in UK?

I believe that they featured wooden spokes and solid rubber tyres if that helps. Thanks for any information!
