    Steve's Paramount is very cool indeed...and it's red, so it looks fast standing still!

    There is a more casual lakefront ride some Sundays, same route as the one that has been described here from time to time. The guy who usually calls it is a CR member, but not BF. Maybe we can make...

    Sorry we will miss cb400bill! But the weather was looking dreadful. Of course things will likely turn around, Saturday will be nice, not Sunday.

    I found that the Batas were a bit weird to wear; the shoes fit me but the part that actually fits around your ankle (must be a name for it) was loose so they felt floppy. Also the heel is quite...

    Miyata were mass produced bikes, but you can scan the entire history of this forum and not see a bad word said about them. Okay, maybe a few will say that the 1000 doesn't quite live up to its...

    I didn't seem to have gotten any bites, I mean replies, to my CL ad (same copy and pics) but I just looked at the spam filter on my yahoo account and there were a couple.

    Well, I can't make the bike bigger, but Steve, face the facts, you are over 40 and are only going to get smaller. You should buy this bike to be ready!

    I don't have call for 'donkeys' or 'mules' these days. But please send details on quantity and quality of 'SpaghettiOs.' 'Meatballs' only of interest if 'SpaghettiOs' particularly harsh.

    Hi, aaceve7.

    I agree with Timmy, that does not look too bad. Also, it looks like that bike is a Motobecane Mirage, set up with rack as a nice commuter/grocery-getter/lakefront-path-rider. In...

    Apparently so, the change being between 1972 (ish) with the red lugs/black tube and 1973 with black lugs/red tube. Looks cool either way!

    I agree on both counts, and the 'de mol' also looks like one that a more sensibly-sized cyclist could ride. ;)
