When I lived in the suburbs I had a Ross Mt. Rainer. In its last incarnation I set it up with drops, a rack and baskets as a local errand ride. When I moved to Manhattan I put it back to its original state and gave it to a friend who needed it.

All these amazing high end bikes...I think I need to inject a little "street" here (nothing says realistic like patina):

Mid 70s Lejeune Mixte:


I recently posted this 49 Humber with its (mostly intact) blue paint:


Also recently posted some shots of this 38 CCM - I like this "racy" shot:
