Amazing Beater spotted this am.

A 50-ish guy with a ponytail, in full 80's regalia. Pink helmet, pink puffy jacket. Bike was a 70's 5 speed (!) yellow Columbia road bike. Bars were turned upside down, of course. Fully rusted chain, gears & brakes. What looked like the original tires were almost flat and ragged to the extreme. It looked like that bike had been ridden every day, for about 30 years.

I really wanted to tell him to get new tires, but I was just staring, open-mouthed.

Anyway, it was working for him...
