A right Burco

Seen on the train to London today, this superb example of a Dutch bicycle – double parallel crossbar, hub gears with integral hub brake, front hub brake and, of course, the obligatory child seat.

Manufactured by the Dutch company Burco, probably in the 1970s.

What a superbly comfortable and sturdy-looking machine it is.

Nearly as good as the bicycle that I had built for me by Mercian twenty years ago.
