... I saw this beaut last evening.


I guess gas prices are hitting home here on Long Island. Wanted to, but didn't, ask around for the owner to see if I could take it for a quick spin. Never thought I'd see one of these tooling around the suburban hell in which I live. Yay Bakfiets!

Now sure where my picture is, but check out the object of my bike lust here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/79123806@N00/2657416016/

Bad image link, you have to link to the image, not just the page where it is found.
