Your most Fun/cool/hip/stying bike

OK Just because we are C&A does not mean we don't have fun, cool, hip, styling bikes (at least in our own minds), So share yours. (and yes this is a shameless way to get more bike pictures up in C&A)

Here is my fun bike. 84 Torpado Super Strada, set up as a city bike (postino bars, basket so I can carry junk) This is a fun conversion, the bike is light, fast (still an Italian race bike at heart), practical and simply puts a smile on my face when I ride it. I use this one for errands, shortish rides for exercise (10-12 miles total) and getting espresso.
