Another interesting royal fact about Fongers bicycles: With the kind cooperation of HRH Princess Margriet, VELORAMA (the Dutch Bicycle Museum http://www.velorama.nl/ ) purchased the Fongers bicycle used by Her Majesty Queen Wilhelmina of the Netherlands in the 1940s and 1950s. Until recently Princess Margriet also rode on this historic cycle! Here is a pic attached from the following source: http://www.fietsen.123.nl/koninklijkfietsen.htm

Cheers
