Nothing brings out the rust and scratches on a white bike (that it received from it's prior owner), then fresh white snow. This is my winter bike - an 87 Le Tour.

He may be scratched & rusted, but that's no way to treat a friend.
Even if he is a DWB.

HAHAHA! Nah, it made taking my glove and watching the salt off easier. I just did the BB on it two days ago. I actually really like this guy

Indeed... It's a great little bike - glad I found it and am able to use it as much as I have been this winter. I always wash it off when I'm through and bring it indoors
