    Neat. That Pennsylvania to Florida guy pic is cool. The turn signal helmet also is interesting.

    I liked the one of William Powell. We watched the Thin Man movies over the holiday, and it's nice to see him with a bike.

    Indeed, with a bolt cutter in hand! (It seems to me he would be a perfect candidate to play LBJ)

    I like that most of the famous old timers were riding hybrids with style, without any of the geeky look these days

    Looks closely. It's not quite a penny-farthing per se...perhaps a farthing-penny?

    More pix of that American Star bike: https://www.google.com/search?q=amer...=1495&bih=1017

    For modern-day celebrities the bar may be way too low, because all they have to do is ride a bike down one block and the paparazzi sh*t themselves.

    How about President Bush mountain biking! Word is he's no posseur. He's the real deal. Loves mountain biking and while prez at age 60 plus gave his secret service detail all the workout they could handle. I'm not much of a Bush fan, but gotta respect that.
    I'm just trying to be the person my dog thinks I am.
