    Raleigh Retro Ride 4

    Worth it? Kind of like the styling. It's been posted before. Hoping someone will say something negative because I bring home another bike and I may get kicked out of the house and end up living in a van...

    simplex cruiser

    Anybody got an idea what this is? I haven't found a picture of a simplex bike that looks like this and simplex manufacturing in New Orleans was a motorcycle company from what I find on google.
