    Bike had an old repaint with quite a bit of flaking. I like this frame style and the coffin chaining was the center piece for me. And the badge is neat too. 20141006_171045-2.jpg
    Decided to do something different with it. Replaced the Allstate Safety treads with some Quick Bricks and added a raw repop tank.

    Here it is now, tankless with a red long spring seat, some Duro brick tires, truss rods and a axle mounted kick stand. 20150115_153803.jpg

    I vote B with the C saddle. Just my humble opinion.

    Yeah, that works too. The black saddle is my "Greenway " rider. Comfy after many miles and quiet.

    Sold it a while back. Someone plucked the badge off, painted it black and put it on ebay.
