“Hey mister, what is that? Should you in the city driving around? That is the max!” Stefaan Streulens has a lot of attention with his SPK, the abbreviation of ‘Stefkes PriezeKerre’ as he is by the historical centre of Ghent drive, los by the textural cuts and shifts without the risk to be fined. “Tourists confuse my ‘autofiets " sometimes with a wandelbusje. Then I need them unfortunately to disappoint,” he laughs.
“The majority of the responses are positive though there are also individuals who are free from envy, responding, " that I me all can afford’.” But Stefaan has the law behind him. “My SPK is officially within the legal definition of a bicycle, just as a ‘beer bike’ should I be me without problems to move in the pedestrian area and me parking on the footpath as long as there is at least 1.20 metres left for passers-by.”
