    All dressed up and no place to glow

    I went with white wrap...
    (the confusing lines caused by the other picture subjects were intended to be "artsy" --but it went horribly wrong).

    That's the next project behind it --restoring an old Mel Pinto Tandem.

    Looks very good. Are they Continentials you're running on it?
    Oh I used to be disgusted and now I try to be amused. But since their wings have got rusted, you know, the angels wanna wear my red shoes. But when they told me 'bout their side of the bargain, that's when I knew that I could not refuse. And I won't get any older, now the angels wanna wear my red shoes.

    The white wrap works. Another option that I think would look good is natural cork. Maybe even with shellac to make it look more yellowish. That is a nice looking bike. I bet it rides very comfortably with the 853 steel frame. I was going to rag you about the pogo post, but you mentioned your prostate, so I guess you have a need for extra cushioning.
    The more you ride your bike, the less your ass will hurt.

    I wouldn't have thought of white, but it works.
