The P.T. Helleberg Trygg from Lillehammer

Here's a bit of a mouthful for the non Nordic readers of The Bicycle Safari. The Trygg bicycle by P.T. Helleberg from Lillehammer!


One reader in Sweden sent this classic Norwegian steel bike in to The Safari.


Founded in 1897 P.T. Helleberg made these kind of bikes and bike accessories up in Lillehammer in Norway.


Lots of nice details, like the great badge on the font, and this nice little 'flying' emblem on the front fender! If you see a nice classic bike you like, why not send it into the Bicycle Safari?

  1. This was my grandfather Einar Haugen's firm in partnership with helleberg. I still have a lot of silverware with the Troll on a bike "sant veloce" badge on. My sports cars are also named Troll

  2. I have a 1946 Trygg. It's a wonderful bike that was purchase new by a Norwegian soldier after WW2. He used it to tour Norway after the war. Later, he moved to Massachusetts (US)and gave the bike to his neighbor, who is originally from England. The neighbor then gave it to me. I did a light restoration of the mechanicles and I ride it everywhere. It's so nice having a large bike since I am 6'2".
