DQRider , is that a DL-1 frame with drum brakes in the front and drum or coaster brakes in the rear? As much as I like how cleverly engineered the brake linkages are, they are limited in the stopping power. Nice bike. I like the picture a whole lot too. It looks like the face painted on the wall admires your ride as well.

I had a DL-1 that was pretty complete and original, and liked the way it rode. It was too good for me so I passed it along. I always thought that a DL-1 with better brakes would be nice ride.

This is actually an old Pashley Sovereign Roadster that was converted to path racer by the previous owner. The drum brakes are a tremendous improvement over the original rod-brakes.

I added my own touches to the cockpit, and it is one of my favorite rides now.

I had fennel growing in the yard for a few years and those swallowtail were frequent visitors. You would need an orange bike with black details for a monarch...

Thanks for the lesson in butterfly species/colors. I'll be the first to admit that I'm no botanist!

I think this one belongs in "show me your bike in front of artsy stuff," but I couldn't find it.

To the right of my bike there, that is not a mirror capturing the photographers reflection, but I must confess the likeness is uncanny.
