WorkCycles Opafiets

The simplest frame version for WorkCycles traditional Dutch city bikes - no nonsense looks but the same quality as our other bikes. Dutch men have been riding such elegant and practical bikes for a century. These are just the latest and best in a long evolution.

Each frame is hand-brazed and powder-coated, extra-tough for decades of heavy service. Extensive use of stainless steel, special anticorrosion primer, reinforced wheels, and WorkCycles attention to detail. The WorkCycles Opafiets is not just another retro-fashion lookalike; it's a timeless utility vehicle made with modern materials and parts.

Like all WorkCycles bicycles the Opafiets can be built to suit your needs and tastes: you can choose amongst a broad range of options for gearing, brakes, front and rear carriers, saddles, tires and more. Just click the Purchase Information to request the full list of options. This bike can be boxed and shipped throughout the world.
