Pink 'pub bike'

I promised more details about my glorious pink 'pub bike' and here it is in the flesh. If you only have one bike in your life, this is the one you should have. It looks dreadful, is truly awful to ride, I'm uncertain about how safe it is but.......and it's a big was free, yes, that's right, free, from the dump! The other added bonus is that it is never going to be stolen and therefor never needs locking up when I arrive for a shout. I also like to think that it is so utterly crap that it is cool. Before long I am sure everyone will have one?

John, I have got one of those, bought it in 1988 or 89!! It went with the fluorescent pink legs on my gul steamer and the fluorescent pink Tushingham windsurfer sail.
Believe it or not, it was stolen but we got it back, the police caught the thief peddling it at 3am. Not many bikes like that in Glasgow, so they put 2 and 2 together... we got it back!

Douglas, interestingly, now you mention it, it also matches the pink legs on my Sola steamer! And.....the flourescent pink on my Gaastra 4.5m!

Rest assured I will take more care of her now that I know they are targeted bythe criminal fraternity....
