one careful owner ( i )

i nearly walked past this ... then realized i was looking at a grime-free working antique ... a bit like me but probably twenty years older ... the owner is clearly someone who doesn't need to make a fashion statement with a new bike ... this expertly maintained old bike, its patina and blemishes invisibly varnished, tells you such a lot about his discreet good taste and skill

Ooo ... thank you so much for the close-ups, Tristan. No doubt a sure mode of conveyance over the years and quite snappy to boot.
