DAHAR (means ride in Hebrew) bicycles, were another local manufacturer in Tel Aviv in the late 60’s.
So many questions! Is that a dynohub mechanism on the front wheel? Is that a three-speed hub on back? Were those fuzzy spoke/axle cleaners standard?
I’m loving these Israeli bikes–that head badge is wonderful.
Thom, from what I understood from one of the “old generation technicians” this was some kind of a self cleaning device sort of degreaser.
OK, I give in – what’s the thing on the front wheel hub? Some sort of dynamo fitment, strange brake setup, or a prototype two-wheel-drive system? 😉
i never saw such awkward bike,
too many questions.
i also never had dinner in yanek’s house…
cheers to yanek for his marvelous dicoveries !!!!
