Wanted: Truppenfahrrad parts

Post by Angus1235 » 27 Dec 2018 13:53

I just bought a swedish surplus Kronan, that's been butchered into a civilian bike, and I am converting it to a Truppenfahrrad for reenacting purposes. I'll need a handlebar, period tyres (or an identical/similar modern version), pedal-feet, a period dynamo light for the front, and a reflector for the back, and possibly a seat, though I have a decent modern production for it.

I may also be open to buying an original pannier, though I have my eye on a quality reproduction which I would trust more to bear weight.

The biggest hurdle will be attaching lugs to the corners of the bike frame, so if anyone has experience in converting bikes, I am open to advice.
