    First Flink I've heard of, but nice tidy little set up. Very nice job, friend! Stop by the my albums to see how your Kaveman neighbor to the north builds ChinaGirls, and a good reason to laugh at my ineptitude! Welcome to the best forum of it's kind, we're always here to help.

    That actually might be the most appealing front drive set up I've ever seen, somehow sleek despite the bulk. Saudonist, you've really done a nice job, and managed to catch my interest with a motor style I don't have much fondness for. Friction drive and front mount, and yet I still like it! I just keep coming back to stare!

    Hi Curt and Mogoll, nice you enjoy , i really appreciate this tiny motor. Flink build them between 1950-55, then they were assembled in Holland. They are 43 cc, 0,8hp, and run pretty well.I and a friend restored them last year, and had to build some parts. They were advanced for those days: they are Front Wheel Drive !!! kkkkk The bikes are brazilian Goricke and Henke, mine hadnt yet the badge. I am trying to forward some pics , so you can see something else about these jewelry machines, before I can take some new ones with better resolution

    Those are very elegant bikes, clean, uncluttered, simple. I dig the loud colors too. The bicycles themselves seem to be well made, and well suited to the task at hand.... Lots more pictures please, is something you'll here a lot of on this forum, so I'll say it again, more pictures please, we all love bike-porn here lol

    Here's a nice old Swedish Flink advert, with words like Sluta and Trampa that will make English speakers smirk like schoolboys. Don't forget fart either.

    hi mogoll and friends, I am reallly glad you are enjoying seeing these Flinks. Presently the tanks showed a small leakage at the fuel cock, we are solving that, in a due time i will take new pics.The motors are now passing by a littl "overhaul". I will forward you now some pics from the time we (me and a friend ) grabbed them at almost junky yards...then disassembling and building parts
