Dutch Bikes in Portland?

Hi there,

My husband and I are planning a holiday to either Portland or Seattle. I'm originally from Portland but the main reason for the trip is so that I can buy a Dutch bike.

I have access to Batavus here in Alberta but I'm really interested in the Azor/Workcycles Omafeit. I could mail order one but I'd rather test ride it first.

So if anyone could recommend some LBS's in Portland that carry this bike I'd greatly appreciated it. My Google skills have majorly failed me

Thanks in advance

I always seem to notice threads with the word Dutch in them.
Former Albertan here, I did a quick search and found Clever Cycles in Portland.
$1600! You could enjoy a holiday in Holland and return with a similar bike for similar money. Visitors can apply to get the sales tax refunded (up to 19%).

That would be a nice trip but I actually think we may head to Vancouver instead as I found a bike store that has the Omas, the Batavus Old Dutch and the Pashley so I could compare all three at the same time
