Dutch Folder History

Here is a webpage of the Oude Fiets (Netherlands historical bike club) showing a selection of folders and seperables from the mid-sixties. While my Dutch language capabilities are somewhat less than the average Dutch dog, Babelfish and the pictures allow English speakers to increase their knowledge of folding bike history.

A more modern Dutch folder design can be found at the Eerder website, the creation of former Sparta folding bike designer Vincent Van Eerd, together with some interesting improvements to Bromptons, amongst others.
