What is this thing?



Anyone have any idea about this mystery machine? I got the picture from a friend so that's the only photo I have right now. Standard excellent sport gemerkt is the only writing on the bike (according to him) but that doesnt seem to mean anything.

Looks to be pretty basic 3speed step through from the 70's, a lot of these where very similar between different makers so it is hard to tell the make and model from the limited info . These don't do a lot sales wise in really nice condition if everything works good about $100-125, is all these go for in most markets.

The chain case and skirt guard (after market?) makes this a little different from a standard 3 speed step through. I also appears to have a front generator hub and frame lock. All 4 of these features are common utility bikes in Europe, especially Holland and Denmark. While not worth much in the US (unless maybe you find a sentimental buyer) these bikes are extremely practicable daily transportation.
