    Looking good. The old style RMB maple leaf paint job brings back memories.

    Those even look like fairly period-correct tires. Are they Smokes?
    Please enjoy seeing this terrible collection of me - something wonderful is about to happy.

    The front is a Smoke. The back is, of course, a Dart

    You sure? The rear in the pic looks closer to the Smoke profile.

    I saw it last night. Looking good Unglued. And Enduramil is right, it is a Smoke on the back. The Dart is up front.

    No, that would be between Unglued and his chamois cream.

    Come to think of it, Unglued does owe us one last picture of the complete bike in the wild.

    No pics of the chamois cream, kthx!

    Yep, it's a great bike. I took the original tires off as the sidewalls are looking a little thin so do not want to risk blowing one out mid-ride. I have them to put on the bike for show if necessary but modern tires have improved the handling to no end. I am still getting used to the thumbie shifters, and the cantilever brakes treat input like a polite suggestion to stop. Certainly there's no comparison to my Misfit or my Flash29er but that's not the point. This bike is like having an old 1970's Triumph TR6 in the garage...impractical as a daily driver but fun to take out on for a spin on a sunday morning. And that's just how I like it. And the possibility of an 8 hour solo on it someday has not been ruled out...
