Henry Cutler writes a nice entry in Bakfiets-en-Meer about the “inventors” of the Bakfiets. Yet, still up in the air about who is the true inventor of these types of bikes, our own Oscar Mulder had sent to him some scans of photos of old “Long-John” types of bikes and a photo of the bike shop his grandfather owned dated in the 1910-1915 range.
Yet, still an undetermined inventor(s), these photos along with Henry’s writeup brings us a little closer towards the history and origin of the Bakfiets/Long John type of bike. You can read Henry’s blog entry here: The “Inventor” of the Bakfiets.
