Re: Tank frame bicycles
I know what you mean Harold. I now have a better appreciation for the classic bicycles of my youth, but I don't lust after any of them. I prefer our modern versions which I consider to be superior in every way. I know that some people will always love the originals, and that's fine. Different strokes for different fokes.
When I was in second grade I had one of those varoom motors in my bicycle. I loved that thing. I think I wore out 2 of them. And that wide drag slick on my Sting Ray was one of the things I liked most about it. Those things seemed more real and useful to me than a faker pressed steel gas tank.
