Bendt A. Nielsen, also known as 'The Banana' was one of the best Danish riders of his time.
In 1953, he opened a small shop and began building steel frames in the back shed. Out of this came a long row of medal-winning machines ridden by Danish as well as foreign riders. He apprenticed his son, who is now one of the few builders of steel frames in Denmark. And apparently he is ceasing production. Let's hope not.
Denmark's Radio paid a visit to the legendary frame workshop behind the Banani store. There's an article and an audio program, both in Danish. If nothing else, peep the images.
