First prototype THYS 222

11 February 2014

The first 222 model was made in 1998 after the 240 model was thought of as a bit too extreme for the large public. Therefore a somewhat higher and less reclining model was designed. That was a good choice for a change! This model was the first of which the frame would be produced in Taiwan and in larger quantities. In fact it was the wish for (expensive) university studies of my children Sara and Derk that pushed me to make this large step to production series of 100 bikes in stead of just 10 or so per year that I could weld on my own. Thanks guys, for pushing me in the right direction. And for finishing your studies by now!
