Finally riding a big boys bike

Seeing all of these pics makes just confirms that
A: men have gotten taller (and... ehem... bigger) over the years
B: Bikes used to be built smaller
C: All of the above.
I'm only 5"-11" and 150lbs, but always feel too tall for my vintage bikes.
My shoes are always wider than the pedals, too.
I tend to put newer wider pedals on my vintage riders.
My 53 Panther isn't too bad with Stingray-style bars on it, but the original bars were too low, and close to the saddle.
I still wouldn't mind if I could slide the saddle back a bit...

after looking at the photos I have determined that 75% of vintage bike people have their seats way too low for efficient pedaling. your leg should be almost straight at the bottom of the pedal stroke.
