DP Racing Escaper | 466
DP Racing is a brand of Damka Trading from Venray, an early player on the Dutch mountain bike and BMX market. Mountain bikes and BMX bicycles (not to be confused with the British BMX brand of the same name) were sold under this brand in the mid-1980s.
The BMX heritage is still clearly recognizable in this bike: the welded frame construction, the stem diameter and the headset are clearly borrowed from that branch of cycling.
