    wanted: Dutch bike

    To disable ads, please log-in.

    Hi everyone,
    I am located in the US, but really want a Dutch "omafiet." Is anyone familiar with bike shops in the Netherlands that would be willing to ship to the US? (or anyone in the US that may be looking to find their bike a new home?)

    I don't want a super expensive bike (a few hundred euros), just something to commute around on during our short summers. Of course I am willing to pay shipping too. I feel like I have googled every keywords I can think of and haven't come up with much. Any leads would be appreciated.

    Thanks!

    Have you tried these guys in San Francisco: http://www.mydutchbike.com/bicycles/...-and-opafiets/

    But it may be easier to look into the Electra bikes - they have cruisers that look a lot like the omafietsen in their Amsterdam collection and they are more widely available.

    Thanks for th recommendations!
    I have glanced at those, but they are a little out of my price range. I really just want an old clunker. I see a ton of them on the Dutch equivelent of craigslist (I know, I know...you get what you pay for with a bike) I just highly doubt someone is going to ship it to the US!

    I guess I will keep looking and if nothing else comes along, I'll suck it up and spend the money
