That's what makes it jackass. That it could be fly but it ain't.

Hrm, I kind of know that guy, maybe he'll chime in on the seat angle.

OF course... he might have something better to do.

Like take a ****.

Choppers are lame, and ruining a perfectly good bike ride by pushing around a stupid and unrideable imitation of a lame method of transportation falls way short of badass. It isn`t jackass but it is lame as hell.

Brooks saddles often fit people best pointed up a bit, nothing to see here. I'm more agog about all the leather and brass hung off a dull gray aluminum frame.

The Great Pumpkin!
as someone who owns a TT frame, a normal saddle needs to be slightly pointed down usually due to the hella drop. even for a brooks this is too up, plus it's a swallow or swift or whatever, not a b67 or b17 so they do more of a more modern saddle fit...

and i like the dull gray, leather, and brass look, looks steampunk

The red part ( on the handlebar ) is not paint. Look at huge shadow the bottom part of the left "grip".

I don't know if that's a Raleigh 20, but i believe Raleigh did manufacture some non folding Twentys. Personally, I think that bike is pretty cool. Looks like fun.

dougland was just being over-the-top rude on several threads (kilo and pista concept) and then he started some off-topic thread about online gaming.
