My dad's. One medium out of 25 ever made, 100 hand-made in total. Rides like a hot knife through butter!

Formerly owned by Tom Nakashima; under his ownership it won bike of the year on fixed gear gallery:

is it OK if i like mine better? ;-)

interesting touch on the partial handlebar covering, and grips and bars in the contrasting colors. not sure i like it, but these bikes were always sort of about going your own style and i just went a different style with mine (big ring/cog, fat tires, and all black).

i'm not surprised to see that most of the original components have been replaced; anyone actually using one of these for what it's for will know that most of the original componentry was crap. a tip-o'-the-hat to the Previous Owners for sticking with the original critical components; the frame/fork/bars/stem!

FWIW, there were actually ~50 Mediums made by most accounts, with ~25 Smalls, ~25 Larges (including mine) and what's referred to as "a few others" for a total of somewhere around 103-106. Ibis has posted records showing that there were only 15 Smalls, 60 Mediums, and 25 Larges.

just a guy,...

LOVE it...

That's a beauty.

*gasp*

man... that thing is gorgeous. I bet it's a joy to ride! Safe travels!

the best things in life aren't things...
