New Acquisition. . .strange paint

In my persuit of all things Dutch (well all bike things)
I've wanted a De Reus, very nice bikes, established
builder, proven history.
So, There's an advertisement in a Dutch classified
site and with some assistance I persue it.
I end up with what has to be the most
bizarre paint scheme I have ever seen!
Matches a club jersey.
And I always thought the Dutch were a
staid, conservative people, what did I know?

The chrome is less susceptible to being chipped by chainslap, and it's less work to chrome (actually prep for chroming - polish between layers & all) only the one side.

Hey Marty - is that frame late '80s vintage? One of these days, I'll take some pics of my Cycles Bontekoe for you. Maybe trade material...?

From what I've been told it's 93 or 94 vintage.
I've got a few more pics (alot really) but they
are huge.
I'd like to see the Cycles Bontekoe. I have some old
(going back to 1937) dutch literature (thanks s70rguy!)
from Joco, most of the other builders had little more than
a printed A4 piece of paper (from what I can tell).

I'm beefing up my "Dutch" collection for
Cirque next year (Bikes of the Benelux).

Normally we are. Apparently somebody's been spending too much time in the coffee shops.

I think it's an interesting paint job, though. Very fast looking.
