A New Look for the Electrabike Amsterdam Classic 3
This is my favorite bike. It’s a 2008 Electrabike Amsterdam Classic 3. It’s the bike that I bought that resulted in my current obsession with bicycles. I believe that a bike should be practical and functional.
The basket is a new addition: my new look. I took it off of an actual Dutch made bike that I later sold. The basket is made in Holland. It has hooks that grab one side of the rack on the bike, and a big lever/swing-arm that grabs the bike frame:
I also took this adorable bell off of the Dutch bike:
Brrrriiing! Brrrring! Look at the cute Queen of Holland emblem on the bell!
The basket is perfect for running errands, garage saleing, etc. Today I went to the Walgreens to pick up something for my wife…and she’s second generation Dutch, sort of like my bike, and as cute as a button herself!
See how the bottom of the basket is actually made of pressed wood? It makes me want to go back to Amsterdam…….
