    Unusual Roadsters...

    Though not a fan of old roadsters, I did kind of like both of these bikes that I found the other day.

    The green Sears is from Austria and the blue Universal from Poland... What I found most impressive was their state of repair. Both are all but unused...

    Veloria--

    That head angle is so relaxed I'm getting sleeeeeeeeepy just looking at it! I bet it corners so slow you could grow cabbages in its turn time! The saddle looks like it was dreamed up by Valerie Solanas channeling Torquemada, and what can I say about those tires that has not already been said about Afghanistan?
