Eye candy .
The bars, grips, and front brake setup ruined it for me.
It would be good with no brakes and bars like this.
It's just like a piece of art , a bike that somebody was able to express themselves . I myself don't care for michelangelo stuff , but somebody liked it .
Are those Campignolo QRs? I LOOOOOOVE those! Not a fan of the painted lugs and dropouts. Perhaps the brakes are on for legal requirements. They're needed in some places. I'd tuck em under the chainstay, old school mtb style.
I'm a fan of front brakes myself, especially on a skinny tired adult street, bike but I'm also a fan of "gears" and I don't know what to think about the handlebar. Hey, nobody here does anything just for looks, right?
I'm always glad to see a customized bike when I'm out whether it's my style or not. It's funny after spending so much time on here, how standards change. I think of my bikes as hack jobs, but the more regular custom bike guys I run into are blown away by Retro Rocket and Interrobang, sometimes even the 8th AF tribute. Of course, the last few guys I ran into smelled like they hugged a skunk without its permission and that's not my bag at all.
Reminds me of a John "Pop" Brennan bike. He was a bike builder in NJ.
My favorite early track bike is the Racycle Pacemaker.
Lol I'll hold it for you.
