Got a new bicycle... an Electra Indy 3i (3-speed). As usual I did some customizing. Added retro taillight, replica Road Master headlight, 12v siren, leather bag to hold 12v battery, Pre-WWII Pearsons-Majestic crossbar, and 2 lights on that. A fire engine red bike called out for a siren. Gang way!

Once the cold temperatures and snow (yikes! in April) go away and the global warming re-affirms itself, I can't wait to get out on my wheel. I'm making preparations for the Philly Seersucker Social Ride in late June (think summer time Tweed).

Most interesting , Felix . My discussion " Fop , dandy or just like dressing up ' contains a mock epic poem from 1819 entitled ' The Dandy's Perambulations ' .  The efforts of two velocipede riding dandies come to a sticky end .

The English purveyor of classic bicycles on the UK Ebay, GROOVY DUBBER, has a fantastic listing for an 1869 English Velocipede.Besides reading the historical notes provided, be sure to click on the link for the Youtube video. Enjoy!
