    A Modern Retro Back-to-the-Future Classic?

    Anybody have any experience--or any reaction at all--to this bike? Evidently it was first designed in 1913 and is still being built in India. A bike shop called Yellow Jersey sells it in the USA.

    Dead last finish is better than did not finish and infinitely better than did not start.

    Might be worth taking a look through the archives. I recall seeing this discussed at least twice since November.
    The search for inner peace continues...

    Yep. several times. I've owned one Indian bike and one Brit one. Fun, heavy and look cool. Workmanship on those kind of sucks but they never break.
