    It looks like the frame (the back end at least) is a modified Gazelle Cabby

    400 of these bikes were built for and used bij TNT Post between 2000 and 2005. It has pedal assist with a 24V electric motor.

    I own such a bike and know some other owners. Sometimes one comes for sale.

  7. Micha Says:

    can anyone tell me who produced this bike and are there website with more information about these bikes?
    I own a frame just like this one but without the electric motor.

  8. Collin Says:

    The motor has a label Sachs CMU-3M. I think it comes from the German company http://www.sfm-bikes.de/en/.

    The Dutch company Polymess made some plastic parts and maybe they did the assembly. The haven’t got any spare parts :-(

    I’ve made en collected some photo’s on http://picasaweb.google.nl/Collin.Wesselman/Roodrunner#

    I do know some more about the this cargo-bike.
    I’ve contacts with the firm which produced it.
    There are a few upgrates (especially the e-motor) because of the maintenance.

    I am in contact and also looking for a market. Because there is no production at the moment anymore, but it isn’t a design what everybody may and can copy. (copy rights).
    And also busy with a new possible upgrade.
    So let me know how many cargo-bikes are wanted, and if there is a market in the US for this product.
    Maybe I can get a new production on the road!

    Great idea, and I am sure we dont have them here in the UK. Would love to get some of the vans off our streets and this would be so much nicer

    Hi everyone,

    If you see a market in your country, please contact me.(leave your adress here)
    It isn’t a cheap cargo-bike, but it’s one of the best at the moment in my opinion.
    Production will be interesting when we got a 100-150 bikes to produce.
    To give an indication of the costs….difficult because of shippingcosts etc.
    In the Netherlands (production facility) it will cost roughly in between €4500,- – € 6000,- (customerprice).
    A lot of money, I agree, but more production will be lowering the price.
    Production in cheaper area’s is already looked for. But no satisfaction of the quality. So a death end at the moment.
    But when there is enough interest, it will be usefull to search again to depress the price.
    Another possibility is without the PDA, but with more gears to lower the price.

    I have a very low cost strategy for hauling my postage (books), groceries, dogfood, potting soil, even odds and ends of furniture. I use a two-kid trailer (In-line) and stripped most of the canvas off except for the taut bottom canvas. Voila! With an aluminum frame, I can even carry it on my shoulder.

    An earlier version, was a steel frame kiddie-trailer and I used a plywood board, laced on with picture wire to create a solid base. One winter evening while at the 24 hour post office, someone stole it and the bike (Performance R203) – I could see where they bounced it down the stairs. Still looking for the bike and trailer – it must be out there somewhere.
