In Oceanside waiting for the start of the 2006 Race Across America, someone yelled, "A Capo ... sweet!" It gets fewer looks and compliments than I would expect, presumably because folks around here are so heavily into expensive new bikes.
Some of the folks at work recall riding Peugeot UO-8s similar to mine (but much more stock).
I ride classics because I like them, irrespective of whether they get noticed, but it is fun to have and ride an unusual bike. I took my first ride with the local YMCA's new Master Fit group, and the Capo and I had no trouble keeping up with all of the new gear.
