Hi Juergen and others, this is the one I found in the links on your page. When 
I look at it, I think, Meindert must have 'believed' (well maybe he made some 
calculations) that the bended shape surved the stability of the bike. Is that 

Dirks babypython f.x. has a real straight line.
I have the impression (no experience) that the python drives easier when you 
reduce the difference between hubs and seat, while keeping the absolut seat 
hight low.  ??

I have worked on my python. More on the paper again than in real. Having the 
choice between three methods of welding doesn't make the starting easier. But I 
really look forward for driving.

I sat on Torbens python. Is just not my size :-)

Hello Thomas,

I attached a photo of Meindert's bike. Dennis has tried
several times to contact Meindert for more info, but
unfortunately, he had no success.

As far as one can judge from the photo I would definitely
call this bike an early version of the Python. I really
wonder about its history and its fate.
