This is now, after adapting the bike a little bit to my normal uses, which are mostly practical, with a little recreational riding thrown in, in nicer weather. I don't use this as a daily commuter, at least in winter. The rainy weather here is rough on a daily rider.

I love the older bikes. For some reason they seem to have more character and flair. Maybe its just nostalgia but heck Merlin, JRJ, Hetchins and so on certainly had a lot going for them.

Lovely collection by the way.

Thanks for your comments and interest, Splined!
I share your feelings about the old bikes, for sure.
Cheers!

I find modern bikes starting to all look the same. Maybe just old age, whereas the older bikes seem to be more individual. Who knows.

Kindest regards
