    No racks or fenders, but it has a leather saddle and an upright riding position.

    When I was reading your rant on State bicycle about your wife's bike I was thinking, "Just dump the darn fenders man." I know, I know, she wants that Dutchie look. Gotta keep her happy.

    Actually... We dumped the fenders. And all is well with the world. I'd still not buy another State, but I'll be damned if seeing her bike sans-fenders and seeing that awesome green machine of yours doesn't make me want a more relaxed cruiser...

    Chartreuse.

    I enjoy fooling around on bikes, so drop bars don't work for me and Bullhorns put my hands too far forward of the steering axis for my taste. Plus I get a better workout with upright bars because I create more drag in that position. He he he.

    Ahem... Chartreuse. My apologies, sir.

    What frame is that, by the way? I love these "Townies" and think I may have to build one sometime.

    It's an unidentified garage sale special. After looking at a jillion frames on line and IRL and comparing measurements, I'm reasonably certain it is a State. It was rattle can matte grey when I faound it. After stripping it and examining it I didn't think the quality looked too bad. I wanted to build another bike with a more subdued theme, and State's prices on frame/fork sets was dirt cheap at the time, so I ordered one. Three frames later, each one more crooked and f'd up than the one before, I gave up.

    I'm still on the hunt, though I've changed what I am looking for. I want a lugged frame and a curved blade fork for a more traditional look. And I'd like a couple inches more wheel base at the rear, with room for 35mm tires. The Chartreuse bike has 32s and it's a TIGHT squeeze at the rear and I had too file the fork about 4mms just below the brake hole (not the blades) too accept the tire vertically. I like comfy tires.
