I really want a vintage motobecane or a bianchi. (or both?! or a panasonic, too?)
my blue raleigh mixte (1983, someone said?) doesn’t look vintage enough. my red “citybike”, a huffy, definitely looks vintage, but department store vintage. not the same as fancy vintage. but I’ve gotten compliments on it by middle-aged men.. (the bike’s as old as they are?)
check out the bicycle info project for some more scanned vintage bike catalogs. (I kinda want to print them out and fill a wall with them..)
*too many bike posts—no other content rolling through at the moment*
I really like vintage bikes. and looking at vintage catalogs.
