A very rare carousel motorbike, manufactured by Lenaerts, circa 1950. This eye-catching model remains in beautiful original condition. It is made of high quality metal in a nice grey color, with a brown leather seat and a red leather seat. It has amazing details, every part of this model has been crafted with great attention and craftsmanship. It excels in details! Joseph Lenaerts started at a bike factory. During his career he was introduced to the world of fairground attributes, creating bike models for carousels. This was in 1947. The Greek god Hermes was placed as a logo on top of these bikes. Thousands of bikes have been produces, with a highlight in the 1950s when 50 bikes per month were produces and delivered! Impressive for a small company with only four employees. They were already valuable pieces then, but have became truly rare finds over the years and an absolute must-have for fairground enthusiasts! This bike would make an amazing eye-catcher in any decor. It remains in very good vintage condition with minor wear, creating a beautiful patina.
