Answering e-mails started in 1998 as a website in three languages. For things got too time-consuming, I concentrate working on the Dutch part since a couple of years. This page is a good starting point to explore the much more comprehensive Dutch part.

If you have got questions on dating a 20th century Dutch bicycle (real racing bikes excluded), please mail the following details to

1. Make/maker
2. Frame number
3. Position of the frame number (e. g. seat socket, left side, written bottom to top)
4. Frame type (gent's, ladies' loop frame, ladies' parallel frame, tandem, ...)
5. Wheel size (see the tyre)
6. Everything mentioned on the rear hub (make, codes, ...), as long as the original rear wheel has not been replaced

Additionally, large size pictures of the bike will help.

If you don't get a reply within 14 days I might be too busy at the moment. Feel free to send a second e-mail then. I try hard to answer as many e-mails as possible.

For other questions than dating old Dutch bicycles, I may not be the right person to ask.
