Astrobike was designed by Erik Viktor
from july till october 1986 for a german business man. The artist
made many drawings but this is the one that was selected and eventualy
built as a 50.000,- Dm prototype.
This was Erik Viktor's first design. Amazingly, while he was drawing
the plans, he never checked whether everything (pedals, etc ...)
was in the right place. This is especially important in bicycles.
He discovered later that (while the protoype was being tested) everything
was just were it was supposed to be.
from its unique design - the bicycle industry was at the time very
conservative and these simple-complex bicycles were considered as
"untouchable" - Astrobike included many new features
