Willy Heeneman from the Tom Schouten cycle shop in the Netherlands proudly presents a RENNKOMPRESSOR from 1970. The floor pump would have landed in the refuse if the specialist had not recognised the good quality when an old lady came to the shop with a pump. “It is broken”, the woman told him, it not being possible to convince her that it was a RENNKOMPRESSOR that can be repaired without difficulty. “I want another pump, a less expensive one”, the old lady insisted. Willy was horrified but acted in accordance with the lady´s wishes.

The end of the story? The RENNKOMPRESSOR was repaired and found a new home in Tom Schouten´s cycle shop. It is not known whether the old lady was pleased with her inexpensive pump.
