Good luck and flowers

How fun is this cruiser?

I'd seen flower decoration before, but taking it down the top tube is novel to me. I'd NEVER seen the use of a good-luck tassel before. It's perhaps a riff on the handlebar streamers, I like it.

She was out cruising with her friends to a café. They had beautiful bikes, but none had the personality of this one. Isn't it fun?

I would have liked to have seen that green Raleigh Sports lurking in the background. One cannot look at enough English 3-speeds in my opinion.

Oh, it was beautiful and all original! Very nice bike.

In my opinion saying good luck with flower is really wonderful.

Gee charlotte...you should know by now that you have a substantial following of old bike fans and pictures of old Raleighs (and other old steel) is greatly appreciated. ;-)

The flowered bike is interesting and definitely one of a kind.
