The traditional Long John bicycle has a long history of heavy use in Denmark and Copenhagen.
The original Long John bicycle was a Danish invention by Morten Rasmussen Mortensen in 1929. Nowadays a modern fleet of offsprings has taken to the streets. Including the already iconic Bullitt, from Larry vs Harry.
The beauty of the Long John is the ability to carry large, heavy loads and still be highly manoeuvrable.
Longs Johns became very popular in Denmark with many makers churning out Long Johns for transport and delivery.
Today the main cargo seems to be children!
