    I recently became the owner of some very special bikes! My friend Susannah (good looking blonde on the girls streamline ;)) and I gave them quick tune ups this weekend, new tires and went for a ride! We rode to the dairy queen for drinks and then to the hardware store to get hardware for the girls drop stand. I need to find a correct boys drop stand, and work on the front fender attachment and alignment. It moved around while riding. The girls bike rides like a top!

    What beautiful rides.



    Im very blessed to own these. Even if it meant giving up other great bikes.

    Wanted to share :)

    Very, very nice. Tankless bikes don't get much better than this. Your boys bike might be the best OG paint one out there!

    Congrats Amanda! I am glad they have made their way to the Southwest and are not stuck in an underground bunker across the pond...

    Definitely, one of the most unique and elegant bicycle designs of all time.
    Congratulations, on your latest acquisitions, Amanda.
    I'm sure that Dairy Queen tasted extra sweet after a ride on those beauties.

    That looks like a great day all the way around.

    Leaning them on the brick wall like that won't be good for the resale value. :innocent:
