Always.
Hey!! I started riding with shorts and hairstyle quite like that!!! But I was like 12. I think I had those shoes too.

Looks like Griffith park in LA. Can't tell which spot. Many of the eucalyptus trees died in the last drought. The native walnuts and oaks etc did not.

Just saw this on the bay.

https://www.ebay.com/itm/Brooks-B17-...edirect=mobile

Not sure if it matches the OP's need. Also, not my listing.

That is quite, um, vivid!

I appreciate the lead but I'm kinda stuck on big rivets. Also $150 is a strong price for a B17 standard, so someone really wanted it.

Think I'll change back to one of my black Team Pros for my next ride, it's been a while.

I had a similar thought, went to dig out the honey brown and now I can’t find it. Looked all over the basement. No clue where it’s at or what happened to it...

You are going to be really disappointed when you hear what I did with the brakes and wheelset. :- (
