There's a Mesicek high wheeler on german ebay
These are the best replicas available, there's not a single common part at these bikes, everything is hand made. New ones are veeeery expensive.
A better detail picture can bee seen here http://www.sticha.ch/

Hey , I just had to mention . . .
The response of the people I passed , to my bicycle , was phenomenal ! There must be something about riding a fixed-gear bicycle which puts a smile on the face of everyone who sees it . The past two days , I heard :
"Dad , look at that !" "Mommy , look , quick !" "Bob , c'mere , hurry !" "Look at THAT !" "I know - I saw it yesterday !"
I just got my single-speed fixed-gear back on the road again , this weekend . Yes , I know some experts might not call this one a fixed-gear , or at least perhaps not quite like the fixed-gear bicycles THEY ride :^)
I installed the new front fork on Saturday . Fork problems with one of these bicycles are especially challenging . As soon as the bicycle was together , I went for a very quick ride just as it was getting too dark . The last minutes of the sunset were so beautiful .
The red-bud trees are in bloom here , and the Bradford pear trees . The antique lilac bushes are in bloom , along with the wild plum bushes . The tulips are just slightly past their peak . The scents on the evening air were intoxicating . The intoxicating effect of the fresh air was especially noticeable while I was gasping for breath on the uphills . I knew I was out of shape , but still . . .
Sunday I went for a ride over to a friend's downtown loft ( very quiet on a Sunday afternoon ) . Leaning my bicycle against the red bricks of the more-than-100-year-old building , it made such a pretty picture . I certainly understand why folks like to photograph these bicycles against old brick walls . Riding out , I went into the wind , but mostly down-hill . I rode back mostly up-hill , but with the wind at my back . And , I rode home in a warm little Spring rain shower ! Nature was kind !
