Hi Clemens,

welcome at Stridaforum - I'm from Vienna, too :lol:

Yours is a MK1 for sure, amazing that you found it here...

from here:
Old stuff about the past generations of Strida

These bikes are this year - at least - 25 years old :shock:

I'm surely the last one who would want to moderate your enthusiasm...but I hope you did know that there are zero chances to get replacement parts for this ancient Strida type?

KInd regards,

Chris

Ah, I see, that's great!
You must know; many new owners appear here wishing to repair and ride their bikes.
And mostly they're disappointed in the end I believe.

Btw, there's another MK1 fan in Vienna, he can be found also here at the forum:
MK1 professional restore? (steering)

And here's the manual:
