Came across the following weird bike on the dutch craigslist and thought you guys have got to see this:

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:

Velocino:

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