I have an image of a Classic Monark Swedish baker's bike, this one with locking aluminium on the frame-mounted front carrier. I just need to know more about its production and where I can get some to start a small business here in my country.

Photos would help us identify it. There are many innovative utility designs being produced in the bike world these days, so don't limit your search to old iron.

Copying an older design could potentially avoid any hassles with patent infringement, also depending on what markets that the new parts would be sold into.

Found a photo but this one looks like new production by Henry Workcycles. Note the alloy front hub and what looks like alloy brake levers.
