OK--here's the analogy: Some people might say that a home-grown tomato has a soul but a store-bought tomato does not. You might say that a coffee mug made on a potter's wheel has a soul but a plastic mug from WalMart does not. It could perhaps be said that a 1950s Ford truck has a soul but a modern Ford Taurus does not.
So--using that (or any other) kind of mindset, could a bicycle be said to have a soul? (or maybe just soul as in rhythm and soul) And if the answer is yes, what makes it so?
