Realistically, I'm just too danged short to ride one of these - my inseam is 28", which is like a 18 frame size.
That would be a ~48cm frame size... yeah that's tricky. Smallest size I've seen is a 52/54cm frame for the ladies model and children's versions usually don't come in lightweight models like that.

The Guv'nor is an English pathracer so angles are very slack with a longer wheelbase so they ride better on rough terrain at speed and for longer day rides. It's going to be a lot less upright than a Dutch omafiets.

Just to add. In 1982 Koga-Miyata had these two models with double butted Hi-Manga Miyata tubing.

Koga-Miyata Silver-Ace AL. Aluminum on most parts. 16.8 Kg all included.

Koga-Miyata Silver-Ace ST. Stainless steel on most parts. 17.2 Kg all included.
