    I'll throw up my two since they're old style utilities. The Sports picture is a bit old here- I've since added an old fashioned tire bottle dynamo and also an authentic Prestube rack.

    Those old 3 speed Raleighs are the best utility cycles ever made in my opinion- and they look nice too.

    +1! That picture was only about half the herd around here. There are 4 more Raleighs and my Expedition bike that AREN'T in the picture. Plus a Redline 9.2.5 but that one is more of a fun bike rather than a utility.

    That is about the same tilt as on my Raleigh Superbe...and mine is almost as comfortable as my Lazy Boy recliner that my wife is threatening to have me buried with

    This is a question that males of the species frequently ask me - both on this forum and in real life. In real life, the guys also flinch. I cannot explain except to say that it works for me.

    That is a pokeman, Donna !
    I had more stuff that jsut ended up on it over time,
    so much so that it looked like a lonely old spinsters
    bric-a-brac shelf, When I came to FL my Brother in Law
    became my riding buddy but I could tell he was sort of
    embarrassed to be seen with someone that looked like
    they just got released from a manditory 72 hours so I
    cleaned it up a bit.....

    Throwing self respect to the wind, I once again post pictures of what has been (this summer), my favorite bicycle to ride. I have a more BF acceptable '80's Schwinn Continental hanging from the rafters in the garage, but I am consumed with the desire to ride this...

    I still think more people would ride if they saw bikes like this one....I have 3-4 projects going right now, but near the top of the list for next year will be a Schwinn Classic 3 with baskets front and rear, with long term plans to convert to a trike with electric assist for my MIL, something along the lines of Sianelle's Herc.

    Thumbs up cake on the back!

    You all inspire me! I've been thinking to get a pack for my rack, but after seeing you guys in action I think I'm going to just keep the rack and improvise. Yesterday I "drove" home with a birthday cake in a box on the back tied in with shock cords and string (hum, 97 degrees in the shade here in Mass. and on one bump some of the buttercream icing sloshed down... whoopps...)... But I realized if I HAD a pack it would have been harder to get the cake on there. Anyhow, when I wheeled into the bakery the folks all smiled and said this was a first. They went out of their way to help me secure the box. I do believe I'm starting a whole new less gas-dependent phase of life here. Except for well... winter.
    cheers to everybody. Love those rigs! And particularly impressed with the wood rack, those old Raleighs and of course the hand-built untheivable which is a beaut.

    Here we are, just back from the Arlington County Fair. Car parking is very scarce there, so it is horrible to try to drive. Cycling is much more convenient, as is the case for many destinations in our area. The bike is a German Kettler, modified with a front dynohub replacing the bottle generator, and the Adams Trail-A-Bike has a fender added for all weather transportation. As you may surmise from her smile, our daughter prefers the Adams to either of our cars.

    Nice pic of your set-up, Paul. Nice to see how your daughter has grown, too. I think the last time you posted a pic with her in it, she was quite the small rugrat.

    yeah! I'm conjuring up a way to bolt on rear baskets with rivnuts and thumbscrews so a person can bolt on baskets in seconds with no tools. These bikes in this forum are great!

    I actually rode one of these, I think it was one of these bikes anyways, around the store the other day. Of course it still had the huge 90cm wide handlebars on it and I would have to say that its not the fastest but it is the most comfortable bike I have ever ridden!

    old utility bike for IN town..... 'utility' bike for going OUT of town......


    after ten years of hard use, I snapped the bike on the left in half. I'd actually used it enough I broke one Wald basket and it was on its' second front basket.

    However, just this week, someone gave me another multi-speed cruiser frame, and I now have a NEW utility bike that looks remarkably like the old one. pics soon.
