Bike Porn

Surprisingly, I haven't seen a bike porn thread for this sub-forum.

Posting your own bike is somewhat tacky, unless of course, there's a push for you to post it here from another thread. Try to keep it Vintagey I supppose.

Hey I recognize one of those photos! I'm flattered.

The Moto is really nice looking. For such a nice looking barn, that window needs reglazed.

Though the bicycle is long gone, for some reason, this picture strikes a cord...

Not sure what this thread is all about. I consider posting a pic of someone else's bike a little "tacky", I think. Unless it's an historical picture.
At any rate, I like how this picture turned out.

You're overthinking it lol
It's a thread to share nice pictures of nice bikes and bike related stuff that you've come across without all the "fuzz"...but I suppose that's unavoidable
Anyways, thanks for sharing

Well ....OK. This sentence threw me; "

And now; "without all the "fuzz"

Now I'm completely perplexed. What's life without a little fuzz?

I adore the fenders on the third bike in the first post. Where on earth do you get these crazy things?

Thanks. But, hopefully not. I'll try my best to not have them put that in the inferno with me.
