More Info:
Wanted a bike like that since some years. Searched for frames and found the polish framebuilder Orłowski ( http://orlowskiframes.blogspot.com/ ). Met with him in Berlin (Germany) and we started the project. Searched all the parts and the frame arrived a while ago. Not sure if the build is finished like that. Will change the stem I think. Runs fine so far and I love the paint.

benus says:

@mtretyn: There is one "Orłowski" on pedalroom and some other "Orlowski". To tell the truth, I don't even know how to make the "ł" on my keyboard. But you are right!

benus says:

;) I assume you have a polish keyboard! I just copied your "ł"! Now it worked! Can switch between german an polish, after adding it as a language and switching the keyboard language. Still: the letters aren't on my "hardware"keyboard ;) but now I can type Orłowski correct!
