        Details will come with pictures once the product is done. In just a couple of days hopefully

        I've been working on this for quite a while now, I'm just hoping it will come out as nice as I am planning!

            It will be compatible with a Schlumpf hub, but I'm not riding a geared fatty!

            I prepared all my tubing for the first one yesterday. I should be able to get this done by next week

            I have another one to make so far for a friend. I'll be ready to take orders as soon as it's tested properly

                Funny - in Danish the words "Husker du" means "Do you remember"!

                Looking closer at the picture, I saw that it said "Hüsker dü" and not "Husker du", so it probably means something totally different - in some other language.

                  That's hilarious, I always wondered why a memory game that I used to play with my Grandma was named Husker Du!

                    This has become a new nickname for my cat. She is very large.

                        I remember seeing the TV ads for that game in the 70s or 80s. They did mention, in the ad, that it meant "do you remember" in some language. So it may have made perfect sense to your Grandma when she bought it.

                          You're right! Hüsker dü was a 1980s punk band from Minneapolis, Minnesota, that took its name from the board game but added an extra diacritical mark. 45Nrth is located in Minneapolis, which has a latitude of 45°N.

                          (The second of the two songs in this clip is their version of the theme song to The Mary Tyler Moore Show, a popular comedy TV series that was set in Minneapolis.)

                            That's really funny - but makes sense

                              I didn't know the band, but when I follow a link in your link I found a picture of the game (which I have not seen before) with lines over the U's. That sign does not exist in Danish, but in handwriting some people added the line over the small u's so that they were not confused with small n's. Nowadays I think only elderly people would put a line over the u's.

                              But you are still younger than I am

                              Best regards,
