    Beautiful Bicycles

    This bike was very inspirational to me when I first saw it.

    The folks (Brad and his wife KoolCat/Cathy) over at Atomic Zombie are very much into the DIY recumbent and electric bicycles. They sell plans and special parts and host galleries of pictures, and a forum to help with advice and ideas.

    I date back to the "all steel" era- a red DeRosa I saw in a magazine story was my dream. Today it would be considered just an "old steel bike".

    No contest here. The '50s, '60s, '70s & '80s lugged steel bikes rule for looks.

    For me it's Olympia or nothing, well maybe Ricardo but Olympia has been around 120 years and always family owned. There also the most historic brand always making high end racers.
    I will never sell my 1490gram EL-OS Fusari, Neverrrrr.

    My dad just showed me the kind of bike he had when he was a kid. A Monark Silver King. It had an aluminum frame back in 1938.

    This bike is very nice it only needs an IGH and a chain guard.

    Was it Stan Lee's super humans where a guy reached 85mph in some thing like that?

    Wilber and Orville were amazing. Those are the most stunning fork and chain stay crowns I have ever seen.

    What are those rims ? Wood ? Brass ? Copper ? And that Crankset looks almost like a Rene Herse.

    I think our member Jeff Wills was at this year's speed challenge at Battle Mountain, NV and witnessed Sebastian Bowler propel this bike along the highway at 83 mph.



    But Sam still has the 1 hour record at an amazing 56.29 miles per hour. He set that one as well in the Varna.

    The ride on your back head first steering looking at a mirror http://www.russo-speedbike.com/eiviestretto.html
    was certainly a different approach.
