    Not much info to find about this type, other than these websites in dutch (scroll down):

    Made as they called it as a compactbike in 1963, but apparently an italian company already claimed this design under the name Velocino in late 30's. Only 2000 Strano's were ever made, so I'm tempted to bid - allthough a little voice is telling me it's not going to be easy to cycle this around :lol:

    Perhaps something for Uncle Stretch to bite his teeth into ? Doesn't require much storagespace :wink: unless you stretch it :mrgreen:

    Really cool, I'd love to try it! Isn't there a little problem with toe overlap though?
