The Authentic Dutch Bakfiets

This is the box bicycle used to convey children and parcels in the Netherlands. Positioned in front of the operator, a 31 1/2″ L x 21 1/2″ W x 17 3/4″ H box made from epoxy-coated engineered wood with watertight sealed edges and reinforced corners (with drain holes) that withstand splashes secures two children with 3-point safety belts. Price $4,500

Assembled by hand in Heeten, the bike is an example of the country’s robust cycling heritage, ideal for running errands, shopping, or taking children to school—all without the need to scramble for a parking spot.

Precisely tuned double steering rods provide balanced turning, a rear coaster brake and front drum brakes provide reliable stops, and a steel chain guard protects clothing. Wide tires on the 12″-diam. front and 16″-diam. rear wheels provide a sure grip on pavement and sidewalks. With a powder-coated steel frame, strengthened by double top tubes that provide a low standover height for easy mounting and dismounting.
