Messenger Bike - Arden de Raaij

Paul Keller found the frame for this ragged bike in an attic of a cycling club. Because fixed gear parts were not yet available in Germany in 1996, he converted a Sachs hub himself.

The bike traveled with Paul to Amsterdam and remained his work horse until 2005, when he was messenger for Komeet and Infinity Express. It also led him to victory at the fixed gear competition of the Human Powered Roller Coaster in Vancouver.

Unfortunately the frame broke twice and was banned to the attic, until now...
