    I like the x53 springer on Western Sizzler so much, that I couldn't resist getting this one from @dogdart when he posted it up.

    Getting this frame from Clyde James. It's a Sterling by Sentimental Bikes. Hand built in Croatia.

    Looks like it was designed for a vtwin, an the bottom bracket was added afterwards!

    Yeah, the frame definitely mimics the very early motorcycle frames. That rear end will hold up to a 100mm rim too.

    Here is one of the rides we could have taken yesterday. I don't believe there is a Petra, Georgia anywhere though.

    Bam! That's a wall hanger! (Until the right "hot rod" project comes along!)

    Even though I am currently in Spain, I saw this Moulton pop up down the interstate from Savannah. @joshfromga is picking it up for me. Josh also transported my first Moulton from Charlotte a couple of years ago. I believe this one separates into two pieces is the Stowaway model.

    16" wheels. Here is a great video about them. Check out the full suspension.

    Swingin' vid, that race model is pretty hot!
    I didn't notice the suspension, but knew his name from the Mini...
    Quick search reveals that they went pretty far with the design!

    I like the all terrain version, adding it to the wish list!

    Yeah, I would love to get a TSP Moulton someday. The old Moultons are awesome 1960s engineering that still hold up well today.

    I wonder if the Mini inspired the bike that could fit in one...
