Oops, typo. Tnxs Bob. Shouldn't have read Oko, rather Yoda. I guess it isn't advisable to pedal a Raleigh and frankfurt simultaneously.

Is it me or does the bike look too big for him? I'm not sure he can fully straddle that bike.

Wow he stole a share bike!? Give peace a chance.

Unfortunately ride share is just another sinkhole for tax money in Seattle. Now they are going to chunk the program and do ebikes, a bigger money vacuum.

To answer the OP, I believe he's on a mid level Peugeot. Perhaps a P10 or P10S from Early-Mid 80s based on the headbadge (as blurry as it is) and looks like plastic Simplex downtube shift levers. Any date on the picture? I think that's a 82 or 83 cycle. Could be wrong!

I'm unsure of the date of these photos but some sleuthing would reveal it undoubtedly (their Greenich Village stint). Yoko's bike had a headlamp.

1982 or 83? Nope. John was killed in 1980.
If you mean a model 82 or 3 Peugot, uhh.... nevermind.
