Ha! That's funny. I wasn't aware that these things existed. Heres one from 86 that would work, but I don't think I could afford it.

This thread is giving me garage door envy. My first two houses had nice, solid wood doors. We moved recently and the garage is nice, but the door... meh.

I think of garage doors as intrinsically meh. In general, anyway. Should I start a thread asking for garage doors without bikes?

No! I specifically took the picture to show my bike! I thought that was the joke... anyway, I’ve enjoyed the creative and colorful doors, especially the cool color block door.

Could you post some more pictures of this bike, maybe in the "American Builders Only" thread?

The ever ubiquitous, hinged, white-painted, embossed aluminim-sheet door.




Never photograph a bare-titanium bike in front of one, I always had to go elsewhere for those, or put up a back drop:

All plain white doors should be fronted by a Dursley-Pederson! Have you ridden it? I think we need a ride report, despite all the "modern gruppo on a vintage roadie!"

I wonder what Buckminster Fuller would have done with bicycles? Was there ever a Dymaxion Bicycle?
