What seems weird to me is Ive seen them with different rear spacing.Thats why Ive always said they were built to be single speed klunkers/geared mountain bikes.But again that's all a guess.  hmm

When I bought mine it had a sturmey-archer three-speed hub laced to Arayas. The entire bike was set up like a klunker. I have no idea if that was original or not.[img][/img]

Best clue on those bikes, is they all originated from California

The one I had what appeared to be an original Dutchman bike shop sticker. The shop was located in CA.

Re: 26"no one can name it so far,

So a little birdie told me that my second cousin's first baby daddy heard that the story behind these bikes is that they were built by guy named Adolf Ehrlichmann but since the name Adolf has such negative connotations no one wanted to say it out loud and referring to it as a "Herr Ehrlichmann Champtorker" was all but unpronounceable in the original Dutch they colloquially became known as,

...wait for it...

Re: 26"no one can name it so far,

Welp! Here’s another one.. found here in Marin, Fairfax Ca. Was purchased at a garage sale 30 years ago.. looks untouched besides seat & tires. Not sure if the serial #s mean anything but this one is 1969

Re: 26"no one can name it so far,

Other than the tires and seat it appears to be an original build.
The reflectors make me think it was sold as a complete bike from a shop.
Very cool find!

Re: 26"no one can name it so far,

Yeah, Ditched the seat, post & tires. The finish is original, baked enamel?  I polished it out, came back pretty nice, haven’t had the heart to rip the reflectors off.. yet! smile
