I signed a copy of my MTB book for him, and he sent me a hand written thank you note.

Can you identify the machines of Trudie Styler & Sting as they pose together here?

Tough to tell from that pic.

Hers: tan wall tires, low pro brakes, thumbshifters. I'd say 1990s something or other.

His: Looks like a frame from the aughts, maybe . It looks like he's got those crazy new Specialized riser drops on there, though! Is the pic that recent?

American Actors Danny Kaye and Martha Hyer Astride a Sir Wally.

Photo undated but probably somewhere around 1960.

The Sir Wally experts will be able to identify model and year of their mount...

Don't know about you, but I ALWAYS take off with me kickstand down ;)

addition: found a date for the photo: 1963. It is from a feature film entitled "The Man From The Diners Club":

thank you. have seen another photo from this moment...but canst recall whence.

it may be in one of the books gene wrote. he did one about his life/career and another about his time with gilda, iirc.

very sad about her passing.

he wrote that in her last months all she wanted to do was to learn to play and sing one song on the piano, "twinkle, twinkle little star."

afaik gene is still with us. here is his wiki entry which was updated just today:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gene_Wilder

-------------------------------------

found an additional photo of Danny Kaye atop a heron from the 1963 film "The Man From The Diners Club."

looks to be a different bike from the first picture. it is a Sports model.

noted that he is riding on the sidewalk which has long been illegal in california for persons over the age of fourteen. just imagine what that 356A in the foreground might be worth today...

HINT: Looks like he's terminating his ride and the terminus of the local greenway, which must've been paid for by funds allocated by the governor.

And if you miss him the first time he'll be back.

Front tire looks flat (or maybe it is the shadows?). Fun shoes for riding as mentioned :)

72Paramount 09-11-15 03:32 PM

I think the bike might be decoration for the restaurant. Notice the lighting? And yes, the front tire is very flat.

Don't know if this site has been referenced, but there's lots of good pics there: Rides a Bike

Nice one here of hipster Lon Chaney Jr. Pretty stout gear by the look of it.
