Yea, Mr. M, you noticed that seat clamp in front of the post. For sure It helps move me back a bit when it is flipped. I try it in both positions, and today it was forward. After riding my "longer" bikes this bike felt cramped straight away. Also, the higher I put the seat up, the further back the seat goes, and this post is way up there in order to get a proper leg extension. This bike, with the original bar/stem combo, wants me to be sitting compacted and "in the pocket" and not necessarily with the hands more forward, but I kinda have to. A smaller rider would fit better. When windy, I usually reach far forward and put my hands up by the stem to get down lower. Miq is right too, that being right smack over the BB provides a super high efficiency stroke through the clipless pedals. You can really power up this bike.

No beaches, trails, or scenic rides but I finished putting some new threads on my '84 Cruiser 5 and took it for a breakdown ride. (It didn't break down )

Here's a picture of it as it was equipped when I bought it a few years ago. Pictures were taken the day I bought it. Second day I had it, the fenders, plastic pedals, and the rack came off.

Put the new rollfast badge on. Thanks @John G04 actually met the owner of the bald brewer. He dug the bike. '' is that a schwinn? " lol. Also saw a nice t-bird so stole a shot with it. Finished off the ride with my first it's-it. It lived up to every expectation. Now I really want to try the strawberry and cappuccino kind :):)

@Sven it works great, thank you for the idea.

You all were talking about noisy bikes, so I lubricated the chain and added a couple drops of oil to the coaster. Very quiet.
Now when riding full speed and the cicadas bomb me I can really hear that thump off my chest or face.

Went a piece out duck creek road, further down than usual. Just makes it a couple miles uphill on the way back.

The Pierce is looking very nice: has great lines.^^^^ Very good looking bike, and I would bet pretty quick.
I got out on the forgiving Elgin for a 52 miler. Up & down the coast, inland up San Diego Creek and back through Talbert Regional Park today. I put my custom big metal seat and a pair of deeper/wider half-moons w/grips from my 51 Monarch Super Deluxe back on. Nice day to get out and pedal.

@SKPC, thank you for the compliments. It is scary fast at times. However the added weight of the water bottle puts it at 29 pounds now.

It's a really nice night here, 81f and feeling great on the body.

So I did an after dinner ride.

Forgot these two.

I rode them this morning before packing them up for the trip to their new home.
Forgot to take photos though. 48 Super Deluxe and 53 Sunliner, both Monarks.

Goodbye monarks. Now someone else will enjoy pedaling up the western coast of our beautiful country on these. I'm sure they won't be your last. If you found 5 you will find at LEAST 1 more. Enjoy the pierce. It looks fast standing still.

Got home after work yesterday, relaxed for a bit and had a vanilla It's-It while choosing a bike to roll down the street to check out a downtown event.

Chose my custom '79 Schwinn Panther since it was Fenderless Friday.

After fueling up and de-squeeking the seat I made the 4 block journey to "Unity in the Community" event put on by the Chamber of Commerce. Lots of local businesses, food trucks and, of course, breweries!

Some pork tacos from Georgia Boys BBQ and Moondoor Dunkel from Wibby Brewing makes me happy! :)

The live music from Foxfeather was great as well!
