    The only bike I haven't changed in years is my Team Miyata. And I've been saying "I'll tear it down this winter" for like 4 - 5 years now.

    I commuted on them for several years. I liked that if I was feeling more townie than speedy I could flip em at a moments notice. Removable faceplate on the stem FTW!

    Dude you are like 4-5 years late for that comment. The rage now is touring bikes that never get toured on and Path Racers (which can mean whatever you want it to mean). Drew is dead.

    Reading too much into it. The phrase is "Pass the dutchie on the left hand side" ....in bike parlance, the non-drive side. Its a line from an old song and often co-opted by weed smokers. Ask me...

    I like the bits you added on. Too bad the paint had to be lost in the process. I have an identical Inter-10 and I love that strange purple-burgundy paint job

    Late 60's sounds right with those lugs and those seat stays suggest construction in Worksop.
