Van Heesch’s Dutch Inspired Metallic Bicycles

View all 11 Photos

Aging gracefully. I hope someone says that about me when I’ve become over ripe in my golden years. These classic Dutch model bikes designed by Bart Van Heesch  have such a destiny written for them. All the parts of the bicycle have been dipped into a liquid metal of copper, brass and zinc. These properties will only beautify with time. He says, “I used the archetypal bike. This model hasn’t changed for 100 years and for me its still the best city bike in Holland. It’s sturdy design means that nothing will be broken and if it is then it’s easy to repair.”

From a journey of learning whole food eating habits, she's taken on the challenges of baking bread, muffins and cakes from scratch and filling the cellar shelves with scores of her own canned goods each year. Writing is one of those things she does because its part of who she is. That and it's a nice break from the never ending work that comes with raising a family.
