What is it about bicycles? / 17

What a brilliant set of old bikes! Rusty handlebars and springs, uncomfortable looking seats, a wicker basket – what’s not to love?

So not 21st Century comfort!


  1. Well, at the risk of being picky, they don’t look the most comfortable ride in the world, Sue 🙂 🙂 🙂

  2. I remember sitting on one of those seats. Oooooh. So lumpy.

  3. and even chained up so you wouldn’t steal them 😀

  4. Definitely more enjoyable to look at than to ride 😀

  5. Those old delivery bikes must have been such hard work for the riders. Great nostalgia, Sue. 🙂
    Best wishes, Pete.

  6. Brings back memories of my hours of rubbing rusty spokes with Duraglit wadding. My dad was a stickler for shiny spokes, and mine just didn’t want to cooperate. 😦

  7. One could carry quite a load on the front of the first one. Great image.

  8. Lots to love if we are just looking, but where do i start on what not to love if you ask me to ride one!!!
