    Well folks, it's a new year...we've parused the pictures of the best of the best in the hobby in the other threads so time for the workhorses...the basic transportation and beach bikes...the bikes designed for simple fun without all of the bells and whistles...well, maybe a bell or two...I'll start it off with my trusty Columbia Special Streamline Motorbike Model D9

    Wow old hotrod that bike is awesome. This Elgin tankless wartime doesn't even have a badge but some accessories to be cool. A great beach rider.

    That one has some pretty frame lines. I like the non-tank versions of many bikes because it allows the beauty of the frame design and craftsmanship to show.
